Dear RIS Client,
Please be aware that the U.S. Department of State (DOS) is reporting delays in the issuance of visas for those traveling to the U.S. U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad have experienced a worldwide system outage due to a technical/database problem and are currently working to resolve this issue. Thus, a visa applicant may experience a delay in getting a visa appointment and in getting visas and passports returned. If possible, you may want to adjust your travel plans until this issue is resolved.
For the most up to date information please visit the Department of State Website for the Bureau of Consular Affairs: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english.html .
If you have any questions, please contact your assigned attorney.
