Visa Processing Issues

The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is experiencing technical problems and is operating at a reduced capacity in visa processing.

This is a worldwide issue, not specific to any particular country or visa category.

The Department is working to correct the problem and expects to be operational soon.  Updates will be posted to travel.state.gov.
