I think so. The current government in Honduras is not being recognize by the US, or any other country. You'll have to wait and see if the elections on november will change anything, or if the current self proclaimed president will return the power to the real president in order to restore everything like it was. I guess you visa will be put on hold till all this gets resolved.

"Real" president? The "real" president tried to make himself dictator. Under the Honduran constitution everything Congress did was legal. Ah, but that's just FUD from the media...

I got a letter from the gov the other day telling me that the application was accepted (the 1st stage), but it's not really clear what it means by "honduran visas are suspended." I guess that just means tourist visas?

I read in the news the other day that the US is suspending visas from Honduras because of the political mumbo-jumbo that's going on over there. Will my wife's CR-1 visa application be affected? We applied back in June.

My understanding is that only work visas will be affected by this situation. The idea is to put a big dent in worker remittances to Honduras, which in turn will affect tax revenues. I don't think family-based immigration is affected. This being said, I'm no expert on the matter. I only know what I've read in various news reports. The US Embassy in Tegusigalpa would probably be the best source of information.

Unfortunately, it seems to be closed (or is it just the consulate in San Pedro?) Will investigate, thanks for the lead though.

I think the non-immigrant visas are the ones temporarily suspended in Honduras. I don't think it will affect immigrant visas. Did you apply for a K-3 visas for your wife ?

I am an a similar situation my husband is in Colombia and I submited an I-130 I have the receipt and now I don't know if I should apply for the k-3 visa?

Not sure if you got your answer yet but immigrant visas are not affected and family-based visas like CR-1 are considered immigrant. All non-relative based visas like student, tourist and worker visas are suspended. I know this for a fact because I'm in a similar boat and I made sure to call the embassy in Tegucigalpa the day after the announcement. Unless something else changes, the U.S. will continue to issue valid visas to relatives.
