State Department not issuing passports overseas due to computer glitch

“A computer glitch has forced the State Department to suspend the issuance of U.S. passports and visas at its overseas diplomatic missions. The glitch hit one of the agency’s computer databases.

The Consular Consolidated Database suffered a hardware failure that left overseas embassies and consulates unable to print visas, regular passports and other travel documents, the department said in a statement on its website. Domestic passport issuance remains unaffected.”
