Hello,

I had my first interview planned on 1st of April, it was never cancelled but I decided to postpone it for safety.

The fact it was never cancelled made me wonder if they are still processing visa? It seems kinda odd.

I did not see any information on their website so hopefully someone here has an interview this month or in April?

 

Thank you!

Most consulates worldwide have suspended all visa processing

You have to begin taking interview reservations before you open or you open with no one to interview.  Certainly a waste of my tax dollars !

Good news then is that visa services are completely fee-funded...none of your tax dollars are used for any of the process. 

 

(That, of course, might have to change since there will be a tremendous drop in consular revenue with months of no MRV fees being collected.)

So I emailed the ambassy about my appointment in June and it is not cancelled, it's really odd, maybe the person who answered me is wrong ? I guess I will drive there and see on the day of the appointment.
