The Department of State (DOS) has issued updates on the operational status of the Consular Consolidated Database, which is used for visa and passport processing.  Applicants should continue to expect approximately one week beyond normal processing for nonimmigrant visas.

Please refer to the Department of State's website for the most up-to-date information:  

The OIS has been advised by the Department of State that the consular systems experienced technical difficulties beginning in mid-July.  The problem is world-wide and not specific to any particular country or visa category.  As a result, this has prevented U.S. embassies and consulates from issuing passports, visas, and other official documents.  The Department of State is working diligently in investigating the cause of the performance issues and to restore full functionality to the global database. 

Please refer to for regular updates on the status of visa issuance.
