London Consular Days Reported (06/15/17)

According to several petitioners, first- and second-time O-1B artists are facing delays and difficulties, including some denials, obtaining visas from the London consulate. Petitioners should advise their artists of the circumstances and allow for additional time to navigate the consular interview and processing time. As a reminder, upon receiving USCIS approval, all foreign artists with the exceptions of Canadian citizens, need to visit a visa-issuing U.S. embassy for consular processing.
