CONSULATE ANNOUNCEMENT

  • The U.S. Department of State has made significant progress towards resolving technical problems with its visa computer systems, which have affected global operations.  We have issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases.  We are working to bring the Consular Consolidated Database back to full operational capacity 

    Applicants who are concerned about the status of their passports should check with the Applicant Service Center in Guadalajara at contactus_en_MX@usvisa-info.com or telephone 33-8526-1444 or 33-4624-1978 to see if the passport has already been received for DHL delivery.

    Applicants who interviewed with the U.S. Consulate in Guadalajara after July 20, and who left their passports at the Consulate for a local-print visa, and who would like their passports returned to them before that U.S. visa is ready, may contact the Consulate at visasgdl@state.gov and provide their name, passport number, date of birth, and visa interview date. 

    Applicants who have an urgent need to travel to the United States may contact the Consulate at visasgdl@state.gov with their name, passport number, and nature of the emergency, such as urgent medical care or an imminent funeral.  Please understand that only true emergencies of an extraordinary humanitarian nature can be considered for exceptional handling. 

    We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this matter and apologize for the inconvenience.
