Possible Visa Services Interruption

The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with its visa systems.  This issue is not specific to any particular country or visa category.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas are gradually being resolved.  Applicants should check this appointment page (https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-mx/niv) for availability of appointments at U.S. consulates in Mexico. Applicants who have already attended their appointment may experience some delay in receiving their visa.

If you need to reschedule an appointment you can follow the instructions located on https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-mx/niv.  Unless instructed otherwise, all individuals should plan to attend their scheduled visa interview appointments.  Those with urgent travel should follow the instructions for expedited emergency appointment found on http://mexico.usembassy.gov/visas/non-immigrant-visas/emergency-appointments.html.
