Yes, unfortunately it is true. Goodness knows how long it will take to fix it.

Hello and welcome to real life. This has been out for over a week and is on every state department website as well as multiple threads here on the subject. It is a worldwide issue and no visas can be printed, they expect the problem to last at least through next week.

Shouldn't be a problem for you as your timeline states you're still waiting on your noa 2 from 2013 :dancing::dancing:

This "shut down" of visas, for no telling how lone (hopefully next week back on line) is going to cause one huge back log of visa issues, and I fear the thousands of mistakes that will be made.

By the embassy's trying to catch up.

I would expect to see extended AP's especially in the Philippines.
