We have made significant progress and issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases. We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. We are printing visas for these cases with very few delays.
We are aware of a small number of visa cases still in process because of system performance issues. We are working diligently to clear those cases. Visa applicants are advised they might still experience delays of up to one week in addition to normal processing times. Applicants should take this into consideration when making travel plans.
We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this matter and apologize for the inconvenience.
