The United States Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago has announced that people seeking to renew their Visas may no longer be required to submit to an interview.
US Ambassador Joe Mondello, in a video statement, said that Trinidadians and Tobagonians will now be able to benefit from a new Renewal Interview Waiver initiative.
“If your tourist visa is expiring or has been expired less than a year, you no longer have to come to the embassy for an interview. All you need to do now is fill out your application online before your Visa expired more than a year. The application process will let you know if you qualify for Interview Waiver,” he said.
He said once the Visa processing fee is paid at Scotiabank, you can just send the application package instead of setting up an appointment for an interview.
Mondello said this process will be particularly useful for people from Tobago who have to travel to Trinidad for Visa renewal interviews.
“Travel and Trade between the United States and Trinidad and Tobago are what make our relationship strong. With this initiative we are delighted to make it easier to welcome you to the United States of America,” he said.
