Apply for a Visa
The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.

If your application is pending under Section 221(g) of the INA:
While we understand you are eager to receive more information regarding the status of your pending case, unfortunately the Consulate cannot provide additional details. This processing, which is mandatory under Section 221(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, cannot be expedited. Processing time varies based on the individual circumstances of each case. Rest assured that when administrative processing is complete, we will contact you immediately by email and/or telephone with instructions on how to proceed.
Please check the report below for CEAC barcodes for administrative processing completed before January 6, 2014. Posting of case status reports online ceased on that date. The Consulate now contacts each applicant individually when his or her case processing is complete.
Additional documents/information: If you were handed a white or green sheet during your interview, please carefully follow its instructions carefully to facilitate the continued processing of your visa application.
