This week’s embassy and consulate list  sees closures at Burundi, Lebanon, Mozambique and Sri Lanka.

February 4, Monday:

Mozambique closed for Heroes’ Day (holiday was Sunday)

Sri Lanka closed for National Day

February 5,Tuesday:  

Burundi closed for Unity Day

February 8, Friday:  

Lebanon closed for Saint Maroun’s Day (holiday is Saturday)

Although this is a relatively light week for closures, next week will have extended closures for Chinese New Year. China will be closed Monday through Wednesday (SF Consulate reopens before the others, on Wednesday) and Vietnam will be closed Monday through Thursday. Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia will also be closed on Monday.

As always, when an embassy or consulate is closed, there are no visa  applications accepted and no new visas are issued on that day. Also, visas already in process at a closed consulate have to count additional time when calculating the time required to have a visa issued as a holiday does not count as a visa processing day.
