ALERT: Non-Immigrant Visa Services Suspended in Turkey (10/10/17)

Effective immediately, the United States Government has suspended all non-immigrant visa services at all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey. Ambassador John Bass released a statement on the suspension of these services, taking care to say that “this suspension of services is not a visa ban on Turkish citizens” but rather “a suspension of our consideration of new visa applications.” People possessing a valid visa may still travel to the United States, and all others may apply for a visa at another U.S. embassy or consulate outside of Turkey.
