The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our visa system. We are operating at a significantly reduced capacity and will be until we clear the document backlog.

This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.

We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon. We will be posting updates to Travel.State.Gov as more information becomes available.

DS-160 & Supporting Documents

An applicant must print and bring a copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents with him/her when attending the interview at the US Consulate General in Auckland.
If an applicant has opted for drop box, the applicant must include a printed copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents in the package to be sent to the US Consulate General.
Please note that after an applicant has submitted the online DS-160, he/she will receive the DS-160 confirmation page. If an applicant does not have DS-160 confirmation page and the supporting documents with him/her during the interview, or in the drop box package, the visa application process will be delayed.
