US VISA POLICIES BLOCKING ADMISSION OF ARTISTS

Rate this Entry

This story has been playing out since post-9/11 rules went in to effect requiring every visa applicant to be interviewed in person at a US consulate before issuance of a work visa. Given that US consular officers typically take only two or three minutes for an interview, it's hard to see how we're gaining much in terms of security. If interviews must be conducted, how about allowing for video-conferencing or using another 21st century solution.



The article also discusses a legislative proposal to speed up processing. That legislation has has some success in the House with recent passage in the Immigration Subcommittee and Judiciary Committee.
