Where is the visa number on a U.S. visa?


The visa number, also called a visa foil number, is a red number printed on the bottom right side of the document.

A U.S. visa number, circled below, usually contains eight numeric characters. In some cases, a U.S. visa number contains one letter followed by seven numeric characters.

Here are several examples.
