Visa delay at US Embassy

The United States Embassy is currently experiencing technical problems with its passport and visa system.

According to information posted on its Facebook page, the issue is worldwide and not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.

The embassy extended apologies to applicants who are experiencing delays in obtaining a passport, report of birth abroad, or visa, but asked that persons not return to the US Embassy to collect travel documents at this time.

The statement said the embassy’s website and Facebook pages will be updated as the technical problems get resolved to advise applicants when they can return to the embassy to collect their travel documents.

The embassy said it was working urgently to correct the problem and expected the system to be fully operational again soon.
