Welcome to Consular Services
The Consular office is responsible for emergency and non-emergency American Citizen Services as well as Non-immigrant, Immigrant and Diversity Visa Issuances. Full details of services provided can be found under each topic in the left hand column.
We have made significant progress and issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases. We are working to bring the Consular Consolidated Database back to full operational capacity. We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. We are printing visas for these cases AND ALL CASES with very few delays. Please check with the embassy or consulate where you will apply for additional information.
