Delays in U.S. G4 Visa Application Processing

26 June 2015

The U.S. Department of State is currently experiencing technical problems with their visa system both in the U.S. and at U.S. Embassies abroad. This issue is not specific to any particular nationality or visa category. The U.S. Department of State is unable to print most non-immigrant visas approved after June 8, 2015, and is unable to process new applications submitted on or after June 9, 2015. These technical difficulties have been improving, however, and all system are expected to be online by the end of this week. Subsequently, non-immigrant visa applicants should expect additional delays of 10 to 14 days while consulates work through the backlog of applications. Some non-immigrant visa applicants may be asked to reschedule their interview appointments or resubmit application forms. 

Until the U.S. system is fully operational, the Fund's Visa & Passport Office will not be accepting passports for G4 visa renewals. If you have any questions, please contact Cara Weaver in the IMF's Human Resources Department.
