All visa appointments scheduled for today at the U.S. Consulate in Ottawa are being rescheduled for another date and time. This is in response to the unfortunate events that occurred yesterday in Ottawa. Security at all U.S. Consulates worldwide is expected to be heightened as officials monitor the situation closely. Visa applicants across the world should expect slower visa processing times than normal at all U.S. Consulates as a consequence of the additional precautionary measures being taken by U.S. authorities.
