Is this your first time applying for a visa and/or visiting our site?


The U.S. Department of State was previously experiencing technical problems with its visa system, which affected global operations.  This issue was worldwide and was not specific to any particular country or visa category.  The Department of State recognizes and deeply regret the inconvenience to travelers.

Significant progress has been made, and consular sections worldwide have issued most of the backlog of non-immigrant visa cases.  The Department of State continues to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency non-immigrant visa cases.  They are printing visas for these cases AND ALL CASES with very few delays.  For further details, click on "Contact Us" above.
