Should the impending shutdown of the U.S. Government occur, InterExchange anticipates that most U.S. government offices including embassies and consular offices will either be closed for operations or functioning at severely limited capacity. Visa applicants awaiting approvals should expect that U.S. government offices will not be processing visas during this time.
- U.S. citizens currently outside the U.S. Working Abroad participants and Foundation grantees are advised that U.S. consular offices will only be open to provide services to Americans in distress during the shutdown.
