U.S. Immigration alert: visa delays, worldwide
August 1, 2014
Travelers worldwide continue to experience major delays in obtaining U.S. visas, due to a computer malfunction in the State Department’s immigrant visa database.
The State Department has announced that efforts have been made in recent days to restore the system, however it is still not functioning at full capacity. Processing immigrant cases remains a high priority for the State Department.
U.S. embassies and consulates may temporarily limit or reschedule visa interviews during the interim.
