Consular services at US embassies and consulates unavailable on Oct. 9

2 Oct 15


Consular operations at all U.S. embassies and consulates around the world will be closed to the public Oct. 9 due to a consular systems upgrade, the State Department has confirmed.

Visa applicants with previously scheduled appointments on Oct. 9 will be contacted to reschedule. Individuals should consult their local U.S. embassy or consulate for instructions on other services, including emergency appointments. Service providers connected to certain U.S. missions may also suspend or limit services. While posts will be closed to the public, embassy and consular staff will be performing non-consular functions.
