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.
Access to the Consular Section is limited to visa applicants only with the following exceptions:
- Elderly visa applicants requiring assistance
- Minors under 18 accompanied by parent(s) or the legal representative
- Disabled applicants requiring assistance
Please make all the necessary arrangements to comply with this new policy to avoid delays.
