US Embassy #Egypt: To Resume Visa and Consular Operations on April 10

Via the embassy press shop:

Cairo –  The U.S. Embassy will resume visa services to the public on Sunday, April 10, 2011.

For Non-Immigrant Visas (NIV) services, Vodaphone will contact applicants whose appointments were cancelled because of the suspension of visa operations to reschedule their appointments.  Applicants may also reschedule a cancelled appointment by contacting Vodafone directly at 0900-70-600 from a landline or 2100 from a Vodafone cell phone.

For Immigrant Visas (IV), the Embassy will resume interviews for all categories on April 10, 2011.  The Embassy will contact immigrant visa applicants whose appointments were cancelled because of the suspension of visa operations to reschedule new appointments.

No visa applicant should come to the Embassy without an appointment.  Applicants seeking information about a specific visa case should send an e-mail with case details to ConsularCairoNIV@state.gov for nonimmigrant visa cases, and ConsularCairoIV@state.gov for immigrant visa cases.  Information about all categories of U.S. visas is available on the Embassy website at http://egypt.usembassy.gov and the U.S. Department of State website at www.travel.state.gov .

For American citizens, the American Citizens Services (ACS) Section of the Consular Section has resumed its normal appointment system for all non-emergency services.  No walk-in clients are admitted with the exception of emergencies.  Questions about American Citizens Services can be sent by e-mail to ConsularCairoACS@state.gov.

Just want to add that if the Fed Govt Great Chicken Game of 2011 actually occurs on April 8, the visa appointments that have been newly rescheduled may have to be rescheduled again.
