Georgia was affected by technical failures in its handling of American passports and visas, and therefore the process of issuing of these documents may be delayed indefinitely, as it was noted at the American Embassy in Georgia on Thursday, July 31st.
Bureau of Consular Affairs of the State Department earlier reported of a technical failure in the processing of passports and visas. And it was emphasized that this problem affects systems for processing documents in the world, and does not apply to any specific type of citizenship papers or certain types of visas.
Georgian citizens who have planned special trip to the United States also need to contact a customer service representative. In this case, in addition of providing personal data, it is necessary to describe the reasons for urgent request for a visa to USA.
"We draw your attention to the fact that only urgent humanitarian cases, which will be supported by relevant documents, will be considered" - say the embassy.
The American side apologizes for the inconvenience and delays in obtaining passports with visas of the United States and hopes that it will be able to solve this problem soon.
"Thank you for your patience and understanding of the situation ... We do our best to solve the problem and return your passport with the visa of the United States, as soon as we can complete the processing of passports", - noted in the embassy.
