U.S. Dept of State resumes Consular Operations in a Phased Manner

July 20, 2020

The State Dept. suspended consular operations across the world in March 2020 as a result of global COVID-19 pandemic.  The State Dept. recently announced that beginning on July 15, 2020, consular posts may begin a phased reopening of routine visa services, depending on local conditions. The State Dept. also indicated that visa applicants/stakeholders should monitor embassy and consular post websites for updates on the status of their services. Some posts have already begun posting relevant guidance.  It is imperative to note that the State Dept. does not have a specific date regarding each consular post’s resumption of operations.  Consular websites could be found here: https://www.usembassy.gov
