Did any of the U.S. embassies ashore open back up for business? Any updates?

All embassies are abroad.  None yet


YMMV

Kuwait will try to resume June 22: https://kw.usembassy.gov/ambassador-alina-l-romanowski-on-the-embassys-post-lockdown-work-resumption-plan/

Cambodia starting visa waiver/drop off processing June 3: https://kh.usembassy.gov/notice-on-visa-services/

Sweden's update seems to imply visa interviews could occur shortly:

An Indian embassy mentioned they're accepting non-immigrant interview appointment rescheduling starting in October: https://twitter.com/USAndMumbai/status/1266426133513244675

 

The global suspension of visa processing doesn't appear to have lifted so it's unclear if that has an unpublished expiration date, embassies can start operations at their leisure, or the that the state department may ask the above examples to pause longer.

 

I would strongly advice watching embassy news sites, embassy twitter feeds (including their replies to other) as these are the official US government updates on these matters, and that appointments opening without the embassies acknowledging it may be a limitation of their systems on how long the interviews can be paused for.

 

This is great information and the type of stuff people are looking for.  Great information - something tangible here.

In an NVC group on Facebook, someone dealing with the Czech embassy said they have begun rescheduling all the immigrant (CR1/IR1) visa interviews.  No link or proof provided, but that was what was said.

best to look at the site for the consulate in questions.   Just because they are doing passports and other services for Americans does not indicate that the consulate is open for visas.

Nothing about passports.  This person in the queue (no expedite or emergency interview) said on Facebook they have received their rescheduled appointment at the Czech embassy.  No mention of the new date yet, or proof posted, but would be a very weird thing to lie about.

 

So, possibly good news if you're dealing with Czech Republic.  We'll see if she follows up on the Facebook group with proof.

People have been able to reschedule interviews at different times in different consulates.  Sometimes they get cancelled.   Some consulates are accepting appointments now.   It all depends at what stage the country and embassy is in with regards to the Department of State guidelines.

Correct my friend, I think we're all past that understanding at this point.

 

This is a thread about embassies reopening - I am reporting what I saw on Facebook.  It appears that the US Embassy in Czech Republic has begun rescheduling all the cancelled interviews due to Covid - the number 1 question we all have.  Not my embassy, but passing along what I saw from the woman posting who's going through the IR1 process in Czech Republic.

Do you have the link to the FB group? Or any group about DV Lottery winners or focusing on Green Cards applications? I won the DV this year so would be interested to talk to other winners :)

The group is called National Visa Center Stage on Facebook, but I don't think you'll find any assistance there on Diversity Visas.
