URGENT NOTICE: CANCELLATION OF VISA APPOINTMENTS AT CONSULATES IN AUSTRALIA
We have just received notices of the cancellation of several client appointments at the US consulates in Australia.
Their exact language is:
As of March 18, 2020, the United States Consulates in Australia are reducing routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments.
At this time your visa appointment is cancelled. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment.
If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided here to request an emergency appointment.
If you are one of our clients, we will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your specific situation. If you are not one of our current clients but have any questions about the cancellation of visa appointments at consulates in Australia or a pending immigration case, please feel free to get in touch with our team so that we might assist you.
