Visas Resume Between U.S. and Turkey After Ankara’s Promises

Limited visa services will resume between the United States and Turkey after they were halted last month following the arrest of a U.S. consulate employee in Istanbul.

The U.S. Embassy in Ankara issued a statement on Monday saying it has received “high-level assurances” from Turkey that no other employees are under investigation, nor are any in danger of being detained or arrested “for performing official duties,” so therefore limited visa services in the country would resume.
