The United States Visa Interview Waiver Program Expands to New Delhi, India

Under a new initiative, in certain circumstances, qualified foreign visitors who were interviewed and thoroughly screened in conjunction with a prior visa application may be eligible to renew their visas without undergoing another interview.  The pilot program permits consular officers to waive interviews for qualified nonimmigrant applicants who are renewing full-validity visas.  Visas that are valid or expired within 48 months will be exempt from personal interviews by a US consular officer.  This pilot does not entitle any applicant to a waiver of personal appearance.

The embassy and consulates in New Delhi have been instructed to begin implementing this pilot program immediately.
