“The London US Embassy has said they will be accepting emergency appointments for artists. However, there are no guarantees you’ll get the date you need. When the US travel ban is lifted in November, postal applications will be accepted again, meaning you can skip the interview for those who are renewing a US visa in the last 4 years.”
