Operations During a Lapse in Appropriations

Due to a lapse in appropriations, we will not be updating this website until full operations resume, with the exception of information limited to events and issues involving the safety of human life or the protection of property, or those determined to be essential to national security.

At this time, scheduled passport and visa services will continue in the United States and overseas during the lapse in appropriations as the situation permits. The National Visa Center, National Passport Information Center, and Kentucky Consular Center will still accept telephone calls and inquiries from the public. For more information, visit the travel.state.gov website and follow @TravelGov on Twitter.
