On Monday, the embassy also cancelled that day’s appointments and Tuesdays too and said that it was due to a power outage.
“Technicians are continuing to work around the clock to repair damaged consular systems to ensure all visa, passport, and American citizen services can be processed fully without further inconvenience and delays for our customers,” they said on Tuesday.
The embassy apologised to those affected, with an assurance that their appointments will be rescheduled to a later date.
