The United States is suspending all routine immigrant and non-immigrant visa services as of Wednesday in most countries worldwide over the coronavirus pandemic, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus has said.

Ortagus said U.S. missions abroad will continue to provide emergency visa services “as resources allow”. She said the services to US citizens will remain available.

Ortagus added missions will resume routine visa services as soon as possible without giving a date of resumption.

She did not clarify which or how many countries are halting services.
