The Bureau of Consular Affairs reported today that 165 posts, representing more than 85 percent of the U.S. nonimmigrant visa demand worldwide, are now online and issuing visas. They will continue to bring additional posts online until connectivity with all posts is restored. All posts worldwide are now scheduling interviews with applicants, including with those who applied after the systems problems began on June 9. While there is a large backlog of cases to clear, the Department of States expects to eliminate the backlog in a week or less. If you are planning on traveling abroad and need to schedule an appointment with a US embassy prior to returning to the U.S., we recommend you check with the US embassy where you plan to apply regarding their backlog. If you are a client of Marty & Ellis, LLP and you need to apply for a visa stamp, please contact our office prior to traveling.
