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.
