UPDATE: Computer Glitch at US State Department

June 17, 2015 – UPDATE:  A computer glitch that forced the suspension of visa processing and the issuance of other travel documents at US consulates and embassies worldwide will not be resolved until next week.

A technical issue with the Consular Consolidated Database has left embassies and consulates unable to print visas and other travel documents.  Foreign nationals should expect delays with their applications until the technical issue is resolved.
