DELAY IN VISA PROCESSING

Update 24 June: The Bureau of Consular Affairs continues to experience technical problems with its visa systems, and we are unable to print visas at this time.

 In an important development, we are now able to access electronic visa applications after June 8 and this allows us to resume interviewing applicants, regardless of the date they submitted their DS-160s.  Please note that this is separate from the replication issue affecting clearances which allows posts to fully process and print visas.  Biometric clearances continue to be restored, and we expect it will take several days to eliminate the visa printing backlog.  This remains a global issue, and we are working around the clock to fix it.

Applicants, who were forced to cancel appointments for applications submitted after June 8, can now reschedule a new appointment date by following the instructions on http:// www.ustraveldocs.com/fj/. Those with urgent travel should follow the instructions for expedited emergency appointment found on http:// www.ustraveldocs.com/fj/fj-niv-expeditedappointment.asp  

We regret the inconvenience to travelers and recognize that this is causing hardship to those waiting for visas, and in some cases, their family members or employers in the United States. The Department will continue to post regular updates on its website http://www.travel.state.gov/.

ATTENTION

Visa applicants will not be allowed to wait on Embassy property prior to 7:30 am. This will be strictly enforced beginning on Monday, April 27, 2015. Applicants should arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time. As a reminder, large bags, electronics (including mobile phones, flash drives, CDs and other devices), and weapons are prohibited from the embassy.
