U.S. Visa Services in Turkey to Fully Resume


Both the United States and Turkey announced today, December 28, 2017, that visa services would fully resume. The U.S. suspended nonimmigrant visa services in Turkey in October 2017 over a Turkish employee at the U.S. Embassy in Istanbul being detained by the Turkish government for an alleged link to the attempted 2016 coup. There was a partial resumption of U.S. visa services in Turkey in November 2017.

Turkey, in an act of reciprocity will also resume processing Turkish visas for U.S. citizens.
