Our visa processing systems have begun to be restored, and we now have limited capacity to print visas for applicants previously interviewed. If your passport was returned to you without a visa due to the systems outage you may now submit your passport back to our office for visa printing.
After your passports and/or missing documents are received, a consular officer will review your case again. If everything is in order, your visa packet will be prepared and sent to the PTT office which you chose. This process may take several additional days.
We will make every effort to issue visas to eligible applicants within the month June. However due to ongoing systems issues, we may continue to experience delays printing visas in certain cases.
We apologize to applicants and recognize that this may cause hardship to applicants waiting for visas.
The immigrant visa applicants, who applied for a visa after 01 March 2015, can check the status of their cases on our new website, "IV Status Check".
Note: If you receive an error message when you enter your case number into the system and your interview was before 1 March 2015, please visit our old administrative reviewing website.
