This is an update to our recent update: US Visa Glitch is Creating a Global Backlog
The Department of State has made significant progress and issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases. They are close to bringing the Consular Consolidated Database back to full operational capacity. At this time, DOS continues to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. Please check with the embassy or consulate where you will apply for additional information.
