All Consular Posts Back Online Following Technological Systems Issues

The most recent alert by the Department of State (DOS) indicates that all visa-issuing embassies and consulates are now back online, scheduling visa interviews and issuing nonimmigrant and immigrant visas.

DOS reports issuing more than 300,000 nonimmigrant visas during the week of June 22, 2015 alone and that Consular staff worked this past weekend to help clear the backlog created by the system issues. DOS expects the backlog will be cleared entirely by early this week.
