Link To News: State Department Halts Routine Visa Services Worldwide

From NPR


The State Department says it is temporarily suspending routine visa services at all U.S. embassies and consulates because of the coronavirus.

Announced Friday, the move comes one day after the State Department issued its highest travel warning, instructing U.S. citizens not to travel internationally and urging those who are overseas to return home or be prepared to shelter in place.

Routine U.S. visa services were already suspended in some countries, such as South Korea and Spain, that are battling a severe outbreak of the coronavirus. Now that suspension is worldwide, the State Department says that if resources allow, embassies and consulates will continue to provide urgent and emergency visa services. Those types of services may be in high demand for U.S. citizens stranded overseas and trying to get back home. The number of international flights has been drastically reduced, and an increasing number of countries are closing their borders.
