Obama Announces Plan to Create Million Jobs By Easing Improving Tourist Visa Processing

Rate this Entry

The President really seems to get that good immigration policies are critical for an economy to thrive. The latest announcement involves the tourism industry and he used Walt Disney World as the very appropriate location to make his announcement.


From the AP:



Obama issued an executive order Thursday aiming to increase tourist visa processing in China and Brazil and take other steps including promoting national parks and adding business executives to a tourism advisory board.


The goal is to significantly increase travel and tourism in the U.S. The White House says that more than 1 million U.S. jobs could be created over the next decade, according to industry projections, if the U.S. increases its share of the international travel market.


'Every year, tens of millions of tourists from all over the world come and visit America. And the more folks who visit America, the more Americans we get back to work,' Obama said in a statement before boarding Air Force One to Florida.

    Still I believe close to 50% of tourist visa requests are rejected.

    How much money can they make doing odd jobs that justify investment of $60,000, risk of life, risky life in US (no insurance, deportation etc)?

    The Fact Sheet (http://iipdigital.usembassy.gov/st/english/texttrans/2012/01/20120119111748su0.2596813.html#axzz1kWvbrpKC) says they're going to waive interviews "for certain low-risk applicants, such as individuals renewing expired visas, or some categories of younger or older first-time applicants". What does that mean? Will H-1B and L-1 renewals in India be exempted from interview??
