Visa Pilot Program Announced - February 2, 2012

The Department of State recently announced a Visa Pilot Program intended to ease the visa issuance process for certain low-risk applicants.


Details of the program have not yet been determined but generally applicants that have successfully applied for a visa in the past and who meet certain parameters will not be required to appear in person for visa renewals.


Also under consideration for exemption from interview requirements are certain very young or older applicants.


This exemption from interview will free appointments for first-time applicants, reducing appointment wait times.
