U.S. State Department Travel Advisory

The Department of State is experiencing technical problems with its visa issuance system which makes it impossible to issue visas. Applicants are being advised that the Department is urgently trying to fix the problem but that they do not know how long this will take. Applicants already outside the U.S. requiring a visa will have to wait outside the U.S. until the problem is resolved.

If you are contemplating travel abroad and will require a visa to reenter the U.S., you should carefully reevaluate your travel plans until the situation is resolved.
