DoS halts issuance of F, M and J VISAS worldwide

The Department of State announced today that it has temporarily halted the issuance of ALL F, M and J visas at all U.S. Embassies and Consulates. The reason is that the DoS recently identified difficulties with its Consolidated Consular Database (CCD) communicating with the Student and Exchange Visitor Program’s (SEVP) Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). The issue was discovered on November 14, 2011. Additional messages will follow when updates or changes become available.
