Entire U.S. Global Visa System is Currently Down – No Visas Will Be Issued Until System is Restored

On June 17, 2015, the United States Department of State posted the following news:

http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english/news/technological-systems-issue.html

Foreign nationals will not be able to obtain a entire U.S. Global Visa until further notice due to technical issues with the Department of State’s visa systems.

Anyone that has a scheduled visa appointment this week should check the appropriate Embassy website for further updates.

Since London and Chennai issue high volumes of U.S. Visas, links to their Embassies can be accessed here:

If you have any questions about the Visas or any other immigration law matter, please do not hesitate to contact Diane E. Metzger.
