Visas to the U.S.

July 1, 2015

Consular Services Interruption RESOLVED (Updated July 1, 2015)

Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas have been resolved, and we are able to print all visas. Anyone who has been interviewed, approved a visa, and has not yet received their visa may come to the Embassy to pick up their visa any Tuesday or Thursday at 3:00pm starting on Tuesday, July 7, 2015. This includes anyone who was interviewed and approved a visa between June 23 and June 30, 2015. If you have imminent travel please email to pick up your passport on Thursday June 2.

Starting on Monday, July 6, 2015, visa processing will return to normal. This means that visa pickups will be any Tuesday or Thursday at 3:00pm.

The technical issues are still affecting the Department of State’s ability to adjudicate applications for U.S. passports accepted overseas between May 26 and June 14, 2015.  If you applied for a U.S. passport overseas during this time frame and have emergency travel plans within the next 10 business days, please consider requesting an emergency passport.  Information about how to apply for an emergency passport is available at the following:

We deeply regret the inconvenience to all travelers.
