The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs has recently answered some questions regarding the worldwide Consular Consolidated Database (CCD) problems that have delayed many from receiving their U.S. passports and visas. Consular Affairs is reporting that significant progress has been made in addressing the problem and most of the backlogged nonimmigrant visas have been issued. 

However, efforts are still being made to bring the CCD back up to its full operational capacity. Visa applicants are advised that they might still experience delays of up to one week in additional processing times and should take this into consideration when making travel plans.
