The U.S. State Department has suspended normal visa services at the U.S. embassy and consulates in Iraq after ordering nonemergency government personnel to leave the country. The move comes just days after the State Department cited “heightened tensions” in urging Americans not to travel to Iraq.
BAL Analysis: BAL urges companies with personnel in Iraq to account for all of their employees and closely monitor events. The State Department has urged nonemergency personnel to depart Iraq as soon as possible, avoid U.S. facilities in Iraq, monitor local media and review personal security plans. Normal U.S. visa services have been suspended. Those in urgent need of immigration services are encouraged to contact BAL immediately.
