Message for applicants waiting for their passports

The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our visa systems.  This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular individual country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.  As soon as normal operations have resumed, your passport and visa will be sent via the TNT delivery method you have previously chosen.



We apologize for the inconvenience, but until further notice the U.S. Consulate General cannot accept credit card payments. Payment must be made in U.S. Dollars or in Polish zloty.
