Suspension of U.S. Visa Services in Turkey

***Update: The U.S. Mission in Turkey has resumed processing non-immigrant visas on a limited basis. For questions regarding rescheduling a canceled appointment or other issues as a result of the previous suspension, please check the U.S. Mission to Turkey’s website.

Effective October 8, 2017 all non-immigrant visa services at all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey are suspended until further notice.

How the suspension impacts Turkish students at NC State

If you already have a valid visa, you may continue to travel to and from the United States. If you need a new nonimmigrant U.S. visa, you can apply at any U.S. embassy or Consulate outside of Turkey. Please note that you will need to pay the application fee for U.S. visa services in that country, even if you have already paid for services in Turkey.

The Office of International Services is monitoring the suspension and will provide further information as developments occur. For the latest information, visit the official website of the U.S. Mission to Turkey.
