Delay on issuing Passports and visas at the US embassy
The consular section of the United States Embassy in Santo Domingo has announced that it is experiencing technical problems with the passport and visa systems.
This has meant that there is a delay in issuing visas and passports for US citizens in the DR as well as in other countries.
The embassy has issued a press release apologizing for the situation and said that they are trying to correct the problem and return to normal operating procedures.
Applications for US passports and visas made after 26 May 2015 are affected. US citizens who need to fly within the next 10 days and who submitted an application for a passport after this date should go to the embassy and try and get an emergency passport.
