Software Error Causes Delay in Some Visa Revalidations
A software problem has caused a delay in processing in revalidation applications submitted in March to the Visa Revalidation Unit at the State Department. According to the Visa Revalidation Unit , software failed to capture data from certain key portions of the DS 156 NIV application form. Visa Revalidation Unit has corrected this software problem and all applications affected by the problem have been returned to the processing center for re-entry of data. After these applications have been re-entered, they will return to their original location in the revalidation process. Due to this error, individuals may see certain revalidations submitted after March processed prior to March-submitted applications.
The Visa Revalidation Unit will return cases to applicants or their representatives if requested due to a need for urgent travel.
