Last Thursday, the State Department sent out emails informing Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants that the Department is “currently unable to provide consular services for immigrant visas, including Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs), in Afghanistan.” The State Department says that it is “developing processing alternatives” so that it may continue to issue visas for the people of Afghanistan. The message gives no sense of when or how the State Department will be able to provide consular service for immigrant visas and SIVs.
