The U.S. State Department recently published a table on estimated visa appointment wait times for specific case types at posts around the world, allowing applicants to see wait times globally in one place.
BAL Analysis: While processing times continue to improve, appointment and processing delays should be expected at U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. Service levels vary from post to post and wait times online may not be reflective of actual wait times. Expedited services may be available in some cases involving business, medical or humanitarian travel; however, the availability of these services has varied from post to post.
BAL will continue to monitor efforts to address processing delays and will provide more information as it becomes available. Employers and employees should continue to consult their BAL professional before planning international travel.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice Group. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
