Reuters Update: U.S. Visa System Not Expected to be On-Line Before Next Week

Technical problems at the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs have waylaid overseas applications for visas and U.S. passports, according to the U.S. Embassy in San José.

Passport requests made after May 26 and visa applications after June 9 were affected. The outage affected requests for passports overseas, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, U.S. visas, and international adoptions, among others.

...If someone requested a U.S. passport between May 26 and June 14 and they have travel plans within the next 10 business days, they should consider requesting an emergency passport at the U.S. embassy or consulate at which you originally applied, according to the State Department website.

According to the BCA website, there is no evidence that the technical problems were the result of a hack or malicious act.
