Most U.S. Consulates Resume Visa Issuance

June 30, 2015

As of June 25, 2015, most U.S. consulates are back online and are resuming visa issuance operations. (A computer system outage created a backlog of more than 200,000 visa applications, and the State Department is now working through that backlog.)  Many visa applicants have had to reschedule their visa interview as a result of the outage and backlog.
