USCIS certified visa translations for various use cases
If you anticipate having any dealings with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), we recommend getting a certified translation of your visa to ensure compliance. When Espresso Translations provides this certified visa translation service, the expert translation will be delivered along with a statement that the translation is certified as complete and accurate that we guarantee will meet government guidelines.
If you don’t yet have a visa (so you are planning to apply for a visa abroad), Espresso Translations can help with that process as well. Our extensive network of professional, court-approved sworn translators extends around the world, so you can be sure that our work will be accepted by embassies and consulates in the target country.
The cost for a translated visa application starts at only $30, and this includes free delivery of digital copies of the translation. Espresso also can provide notarized, sworn, legalized and apostille translation services, which you may need if you will be submitting official documents to a foreign country.
Provided you can attach a clear, complete and legible scan or electronic copy of all your paperwork, you can get things started without having to leave the comfort of your home. This is because everything can be done remotely. Use our online form, attaching the relevant documents, to get a quote for your visa application translation project. Espresso Translations will respond to you with a quote within an hour.
For a typical project, we can usually return the requested translation in a couple of business days. In a rush? Espresso’s team of certified translators offers both a 24-hour turnaround and a same-day delivery service for an additional fee.
You will receive our professional translations of your personal documents in digital form. Our translations use the same layout as your originals, so that the authorities can conveniently compare the two. We send the translations to you by email.

What is a certified translation for a US visa?
A visa translation service means translating the visa or supporting documents from their original language into the target language. USCIS requires that visa applicants submitting documents to the United States must be sure that a professional translation company has translated any foreign language into English. A “certified” translation comes with a signed certificate that attests that the translation was done accurately.
Those submitting documents outside the US may need to submit sworn translations of birth certificates, criminal record checks, passports and other documents. This is most likely in civil law countries like France and Italy.
Do I need to translate documents for a US visa?
Visitors to the US from most other countries will need a visitor or tourist visa. The only exceptions are citizens of Canada, Bermuda, Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Palau. If your country is part of the Visa Waiver Program, you can instead (with some exceptions) use an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), which is easier to get than a visa.
Everyone else will need to submit certain documents in English to apply for an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa.
What are the USCIS translation requirements for a US visa?
If any of the documents you submit for a US visa application (see below) are not already in English, you will need to get them translated. If you will be an immigrant, as opposed to a temporary visitor, your translated documents must be certified in order to be accepted by the USCIS. This tells the USCIS that the document is an accurate translation of the original.
If you are seeking a visa for a short trip to the US, you will not need certified translations of your documents, but getting certification will add credibility to your application and its supporting documentation.
United States citizens applying for a visa from another country should check with the relevant embassy to learn about the specific requirements in that country.
What documents need to be translated for a visa?
When applying for a visa in the US, you will need to submit the following documents:
- Your passport
- A completed application form (plus the fee payment)
- Your photo
- An explanation of why you want to travel and the purpose of the trip
- Proof of your ability to pay for all the costs of your trip.
If any of these documents are not already in the English language, you will need to get them translated.
Other documents may also be required based on your reason for visiting. These could include:
- Confirmation of legal residence
- Bank statements or payslips
- Proof of accommodation
- Travel itinerary
- Previous travel documents
- Tuberculosis test results (certain countries only)
- Letter from employer
- Business registration documents
- Letter from an education provider
- Birth certificate
- Adoption papers
- Death certificate

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I translate my own documents for a visa?
If you are applying for a US visa, you can translate your personal statement about your reasons for traveling if you are confident in your ability to translate a document into English. For translations of official documents like the application, your passport, and so forth, you should hire a professional translator or translation agency with the proper qualifications to translate these documents and certify their accuracy. Proof that the translation is accurate will increase the acceptance rate for your documents.
For immigration translations, you should know that any USCIS translations will need to be certified, which means you must use the services of a professional translation provider to create a certified English translation to ensure USCIS acceptance.
Are visa translations required for all countries?
For US visas, all documents must be submitted in English. Requirements vary in other countries, but if the country you are traveling to has a different official language than the one your documents are in, it’s a pretty good bet that you will need to get translations done. We recommend calling the relevant embassy to be sure you know what you need.
