OK – I have just updated the latest CEAC file post to reflect my finding that the CEAC data updates are frozen as of June 9.

For CEAC that means that there may have been no or very limited updates to the status of the cases since June 9. Our numbers are understated and people anxiously watching CEAC for updates will continue to wait.

Embassies have continued with interviews – processing seems to have been unaffected, although sooner or later they would cancel interviews if they felt that was justified. THey would most likely cancel visitors visas rather than DV cases.  BUT there will be delays to cases that are approved,  since getting the printed visa depends on the consolidated system.

US DoS have posted this update.

I will post again with further updates.
