US visas halted for technical glitch
The US embassy in Dhaka is undergoing technical anomaly which has compelled a halt in its visa processing for those in Bangladesh.
“We are currently unable to print most immigrant and nonimmigrant visas approved after June 8, 2015,” a notice in the embassy’s website says.
