The Department of State (DOS) has announced that effective October 1, 2011, Embassies in Copenhagen and Oslo will no longer process immigrant visa (IV) or diversity visa (DV) applications. These Embassies will neither schedule nor conduct IV or DV interviews after October 1. As of October 1, 2011, all immigrant and diversity visa interviews and adjudications for residents of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden will take place at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden. Embassies in Copenhagen and Oslo will continue to process all cases currently underway until December 31, 2011, and after December 31, all pending immigrant and diversity visa cases will be transferred to the Embassy in Stockholm.

DOS has clarified that this change only affects immigrant visa processing, and Embassies in Oslo and Copenhagen will continue to process nonimmigrant visas, and will continue to provide the full range of services to American citizens. It is reported that this decision was taken considering the relatively low demand for immigrant visa services in Oslo and Copenhagen, and to make more efficient use of resources.
