As the pandemic continues around the globe, “normal” procedures may be a thing of the past as we wait on the “new normal” and the new normal procedures. Visa Applicants around the globe are waiting on visa appointments. Some consular posts have signaled that they may soon begin services in the coming months, while others have already begun rescheduling upcoming visa appointments.
Most Consular Posts will move according to their own timeline based on the situation in the respective country, with approval being sought from the Department of State Headquarters in Washington, DC. It is likely that procedures will change during the pandemic as plans move forward to “normal” operations.
