U.S. State Department Says All Visa-Issuing Embassies and Consulates are Back Online

Spread the love

In early June 2015, the State Department reported serious technological problems at embassies and consulates around the world.  A hardware failure in the Consular Consolidated Database left overseas facilities unable to print visas, passports and other documents.  The agency refused to try and speed up the process in other ways and visas did not get printed at the vast majority of embassies and consulates for about three weeks.

The good news is that the State Department is now reporting that all embassies and consulates are back online and printing out visas and passports without any problems.
