How does war affect visa process? (RE: coup in honduras)

Hi all. My wife lives in honduras and we recently applied for a the IR1 visa (spouse visa).

For those who live in a bubble :lol: , there was a coup this weekend in Honduras. War is a possibility in the near future. Last I heard, the US consulate closed on Sunday and citizens are warned NOT to travel to Honduras (except for emergencies).

How does this affect the visa process? If war were to break out, what would be the quickest way to get her over here? What are our options?

More than likely NVC or Consulate will move the interview to a different consulate in a nearby country and require the interview to be done there.

Note "Bringing Family Members of US Citizens to America" has to do with bringing family members other than a spouse to the USA. Moving this to the correct forum.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

As long as the Embassy/Consulate is open... likely not much... If I am not mistaken, the US Embassy/Consulate in Baghdad has been open for much of the last 6 years

So in other words, even in the worst case scenario that a civil war breaks out, the visa process will NOT go any faster?

@payxibka@ - actually, the US does NOT support the new government. Last I heard, the US consulate closed.

then, probably what YuandDan wrote would come into play but right now the closing is planned for just two days in addition to the planned holiday.

The Consular Section will be closed for regular Consular services on Wednesday July 1, 2009 and Thursday July 2, 2009 due to the political situation in Honduras. Thank you for your understanding during this time. The Embassy is already scheduled to be closed on Friday July 3 in observance of the July 4 Independence Day Holiday.

As this is a DCF case, I don't know that NVC will become involved at all. I suspect all processing will cease until the the Embassy/Consulate in Tegucigalpa reopens.

There is for "normal" visas, you could apply for an expedite through the NVC etc. However, as DCF bypassed all that and usually is much faster (we are talking weeks in many cases), I don't think there is. Do you/ the USC have a number in the embassy that still works? If not, maybe an emergency number in the state department or something for USCs living in the region that you could call and ask?
