Clarification for the Record – Visa Cases

Islamabad, August 8, 2014

We have seen reports in the media recently of visa applications and cases pending with the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad. Visa cases are strictly confidential and treated as such by U.S. officials. We do not discuss ongoing cases or share details of them, and suggestions to the contrary are false. The dissemination of information on U.S. visa processing by non-U.S. officials is unhelpful, frequently misleading, and often inaccurate.
