Update Regarding Visa Services

Important Notice

Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas are being resolved; all applicants can schedule appointments as normal.

IF YOU WERE AFFECTED BY THE SYSTEM OUTAGE, AND YOUR INTERVIEW WAS SCHEDULED FOR DUBAI:

  • If you made an interview appointment, and we were not able to interview you because of the system problems, please reschedule your interview appointment now. We will open up additional appointments as soon as we are able.

SPECIAL NOTICE FOR TRANSFERS: If you submitted your DS-160 visa application to the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi but scheduled your visa interview appointment at the US Consulate in Dubai, we may have told you at the interview appointment that we were not able to transfer your case due to the technical problems. If you are in this group of applicants, please either:

1) reschedule your appointment in Abu Dhabi; or

2) reschedule your appointment in Dubai, but please complete a NEW DS-160, selecting Dubai as the location, before appearing for your appointment.
