  • The State Department Waived Interviews for Visa Applications.

    The State Department has waived the need for interviews (in certain cases) for visa applicants to the United States. The considerable backlog of applications since the COVID-19 pandemic made this step necessary to speed up the process of evaluating nonimmigrant visa applications. Here’s what you should know about this change by the NPZ Law Group.

    Waivers for Applicants of Employer-Petition-Based Visas and Their Spouses and Dependents

    The employment-based visa includes the following:

    • H-1B
    • H-3
    • H-4
    • L
    • O
    • P
    • Q

    Therefore, the aforementioned visa applicants, the H categories’ dependents, and H-4 spouses must meet the following conditions to have their interviews waived for the visa application process.

    • Must have had any type of visa issued previously
    • They will need to submit their visa application in the country where they reside or have nationality of.
    • The applicants should not appear to be potentially ineligible or ineligible for the visa they are applying for.
    • The applicants should never have had a visa refused unless the refusal was waived or overcome.
    Those applying for the aforementioned visa applications for the first time can also have their interviews waived if they are nationals or citizens of a country that is included in the Visa Waiver Program. However, they will need to meet the following conditions:

    The applicants should not appear to be potentially ineligible or ineligible for the visa they are applying for.

    The applicants must have traveled to the US previously with authorization obtained through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).
