System Outage

    • The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our visa/passport system.  We are operating at a significantly reduced capacity and will be until we clear the document backlog.

      This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.

      We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.  We will be posting updates to 
      Travel.State.Gov as more information becomes available.

CCD Outage - Immigrant Visas

  • Due to technical problems with State Department systems, we are still experiencing difficulties printing visas.  At this time, we cannot estimate when approved immigrant visas will be printed. 


    We are aware that prolonged stays in Ciudad Juarez will present hardships for many applicants.  Qualified immigrant visa applicants who choose to remain in Ciudad Juarez for their immigrant visa could face long waits. We cannot provide an estimate for how long may wait at this time. Applicants might find it more convenient to designate a delivery address near their residence or another location in Mexico.


    Individuals and families who wish to change the delivery address for their immigrant visas must do so at the Applicant Service Center (ASC) before their first visa interview. All uncollected visas at any DHL location will be returned to the Consulate after 30 days.
