On June 22, 2015, the Department of State updated the Consulate Alert, stating the Bureau of Consular Affairs is in the process of resolving technical problems with the visa systems. Though some progress has been made, biometric data processing has not been fully restored. As of noon yesterday, 22 posts had been reconnected, representing about half of the global nonimmigrant visa volume. Most posts were able to handle visa interviews and some visa printing. This week, many posts have rescheduled visa appointments. All servers appear to be stable. Although there is a large backlog of cases, they are making progress and will continue until connectivity with all posts is restored. Full connectivity is expected later this week.
