On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs announced that all visa-issuing embassies and consulates are back online! The remaining visa interviews are being scheduled and the Consulates are issuing nonimmigrant and immigrant visas. As of Friday the 26th, the Consulate issued more than 300,000 nonimmigrant visas through the course of the week, and the Consular staff intend to clear the remaining backlog by early next week. To do so, they will be operational through the weekend. Although the problems with visa issuing has been resolved, the Consulate continues to experience problems with some online immigrant visa application forms.
