Phased Resumption of Routine Visa Services
Written by: Ashik R. Jahan, Esq.
The Department of State suspended routine visa services worldwide in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As global conditions evolve, U.S. Embassies and Consulates are beginning a phased resumption of routine visa services. The resumption of routine visa services will occur on a post-by-post basis.
However, the Department of State is unable to provide a specific date for when each mission will resume specific visa services, or when each mission will return to processing at pre-COVID workload levels. See each individual U.S. Embassy or Consulate’s website for information regarding operating status and which services it is currently offering.
