On October 8, 2017, the United States suspended all nonimmigrant visa services at U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey. The United States aims to reevaluate the security of its U.S. Mission facilities and personnel during the suspension. The suspension has been implemented for an indefinite period of time. In response, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has suspended the issuance of visas to U.S. citizens. https://tr.usembassy.gov
The suspension is limited to the issuance of nonimmigrant visas and does not include immigrant visa processing. The United States has not issued a travel ban for citizens of Turkey.
