Hi all,

The Department of State continues to work to restore our visa system to full functionality. We anticipate it will take weeks to resume full visa processing capacity. We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, including adoption cases. So far, we have been able to issue most cases with few delays.

Hello,

I and my wife are in same situation. We attended our interview on 21st July in Ottawa and no update since my interview.

I contacted the embassy everyday and for different queries I asked there was a standard reply "We regret for the inconvenience and apologies for delays" but there is no ETA.

People who got their status changed in CEAC, can you tell us on what approx time it changed to issued.

Thanks,

Susheel

Latest update.

 

 

The CCD is still performing below its normal operational capacity. However, to give you an idea of the progress we have made, from the start of the operational issues on July 20 through July 28, we issued more than 220,000 nonimmigrant visas globally. Based on our average production figures, we would have anticipated issuing closer to 425,000 nonimmigrant visas in that time period, indicating we have been able to print nonimmigrant visas for about half of all approved travelers. It will take some weeks before we are back to normal turnaround times on issued visas. We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. We are printing visas for these cases with very few delays. Please see our FAQs for further information.

Monday is a holiday in Canada. It's a long weekend here. So if you don't get any email tonight and if you don't get any luck in their respective consulates tomorrow then you have to wait until Tuesday.

Good Luck
