Welcome to the Immigrant Visa Unit
U.S. Consulate General is now reconnected following the visa systems outage. We are working through our backlogs and hope to return to full operations very soon. If you are a visa applicant who was interviewed after June 8, we are working to process your case. If you were unable to complete your scheduled interview because of systems issues, please follow the instructions given to you for attending an interview in the near future. We encourage people to check our website, travel.state.gov, for more information, and we will keep updating you here as we continue to work through the back log.
