U.S. Consulates in Australia will begin to temporarily limit visa and consular service appointments from now through November, when Australia is scheduled to host the G20 (Group of Twenty) Leaders’ Summit, a forum for international economic cooperation.

U.S. Consulates will prioritize U.S. citizen services, immigrant visas and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases during this period.

BAL Analysis: Visa applicants and others are strongly urged to apply as early as possible for consular services.
