Be it studies, work, business or anything else… It has become difficult for Indians to go to America these days. The reason is US Visa. Especially for Indians in the last 2-3 years i.e. after Kovid-19 US Visa Process The difficulties have increased. Indians have to wait for a long time up to 1000 days (about 3 years) to get US visa. Although for some time America is working on giving Visa to Indians. Now it is being said that in this matter it has been recommended to give preference to countries like India. This recommendation has been made by the committee formed by US President Joe Biden himself.
White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said that US President Joe Biden's administration is aware of the delay in the visa application process in India. He is working to meet the demand for these visa services. Pierre spoke in response to a question on visa applications taking more than 1000 days at the US mission in India.
Recruitment doubled so that visa time can be reduced
Jean-Pierre said, 'We are recovering from the challenges of restrictions and staff shortages related to the global epidemic. We are still working to meet the growing need for these Visa services. We are reducing the time taken for visa interview. For this, the recruitment of American Foreign Service personnel has been doubled. There is more progress in the visa process than expected and we hope that it will reach the level before the global pandemic this year.
He told that 'earlier this week, a commission constituted by the US President asked Joe Biden to consider issuing a memorandum to the Ministry of External Affairs to reduce the waiting time for visa applications in countries like India to a maximum of two to four weeks. Was recommended to do.
