Question 1 :- I paid my visa fee on February and took my appointment but unfortunately I cancelled my interview date twice because delay of my paperwork. As per consular I can cancel the interview date 3 times so i would like to know about next procedure in the case of my c1d visa ,best regards.

Answer 1:- Because the U.S. Embassy is closed for routine visa services, you will need to wait until we reopen to make a new visa appointment for a C1D visa. Your visa fee is good for one year, so please continue to monitor our website for updates on the embassy’s status.
