    Consular Consolidated Database: Update on Operational Status
    The U.S. Department of State has made significant progress and issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases.  The Department of State is working to bring the Consular Consolidated Database back to full operational capacity, and our posts around the world continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases.  We are printing visas for these cases and all cases with very few delays.  Visa operations at our consulates in South Africa are continuing as normal.
