U.S. & Turkey Suspend Nonimmigrant Visa Services

On October 9th, the U.S. government suspended nonimmigrant visa processing at its posts in Turkey. This suspension is unrelated to the recent Presidential Proclamation regarding the ban of entry from 8 counties. If you are a Turkish citizen or someone entering the U.S. from Turkey with a currently valid visa, this suspension will not impact you. If you are currently in Turkey and in need of a nonimmigrant visa to enter the U.S., you may still apply for a visa at an embassy or consulate outside of Turkey. This suspension on visa processing is not a ban of visa issuance to Turkish citizens, only a suspension of visa issuance in Turkey. If you would like more information regarding this suspension, please see the NAFSA website here
