Department of State Provides Update in Regards to the Technical Problems with the Consular Consolidated Database

The Department of State (“DOS”) provided an update in regards to the technological issues it is experiencing with its Consular Consolidated Database. The Bureau of Consular Affairs is continuing to work to remedy this issue. As of June 22nd, 22 consulates have been reconnected. This represents about half of the non-immigrant visa volume. The DOS will continue to reconnect Consulates as this technical problem is resolved. However, biometric data is still not available. The DOS is issuing visas for urgent and humanitarian travel. The DOS has not provided any further update in regards to when it expects the database to be fully operational again. At this time, we are suggesting that individuals delay making travel plans until these technical issues are solved.
