U.S. State Department Suspends Issuance of U.S. Visas Worldwide
23 June 2015Immigration Alert
Before U.S. employers send employees, interns, or other foreign nationals to U.S. consulates to obtain or renew their U.S. visas, please note that such visa issuance can be significantly delayed. The U.S. Department of State is currently experiencing systemwide technical problems with its overseas computer visa system, preventing the embassies and consulates from issuing or printing U.S. visas in passports (with limited exceptions for certain seasonal workers and urgent humanitarian travel).
