Due to a worldwide outage in the system U.S. consulates use to issue immigrant and non-immigrant visas, all U.S. consulates overseas have suspended issuance of all such visas. We understand that, there may be a significant delay in rescheduling of visa appointments. If you need a U.S. visa to reenter the United States, we recommend that you not leave the country until this issue is resolved. If your status is expiring and you must leave, but need a U.S. visa to return, we recommend that you make a visa appointment as soon as possible. If you currently have a visa appointment, you should keep that appointment if you need to leave the U.S., but should be prepared to remain outside the U.S. until this problem has been resolved.
