The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with its passport and visa system. Consular services are operational, but currently issuing documents at a reduced capacity. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.   

Applicants may experience delays or may be unable to obtain a U.S. passport, Report of Birth Abroad, or visa. The U.S. Department of State has indicated that routine passport services are not affected at this time.
