U.S. AND TURKEY SUSPEND VISA SERVICES

Featuring: Tim Golden

October 10, 2017- The U.S. Mission to Turkey announced the immediate suspension of all nonimmigrant visas services at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, as well as its Consulates in Istanbul and Adana. The United States will no longer process new nonimmigrant visa applications for visitors, temporary workers, diplomats, or students within Turkey. The Turkish Mission to the United States issued a nearly identical statement directed at U.S. Citizens. For more information on the matter, please visit our blog on the topic.

For the time being there is no suspension of U.S. visas for Turkish nationals outside of the Consular Services within Turkey. U.S. Consular Services in Canada are not affected by the suspension.

This situation remains fluid and subject to numerous clarifications, and we will continue to provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding how these actions affect your ability to travel, or to seek assistance in procuring a nonimmigrant visa in a third country.
