DOS Overseas Passport and Visa Systems Online

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 - 5:15am

The systems issues that began for the Department of State on June 12 were finally resolved this week and consular staff worked through the weekend to clear backlogs. The DOS reports that they are still experiencing some issues with some online immigration forms ( DS -261 and DS-260), but hope to have this resolved by early next week. Instructions for for applicants experiencing difficulties with these online forms can be found here. Many consular posts have also added capacity in order to accommodate rescheduled appointments.
