Planned vacationers and guests from in excess of 20 nations, generally in Africa, could pay as much as a $15,000 attach to get a U.S. visa under another standard from the Trump organization.
The prerequisites divulged on Tuesday, the State Department stated, are intended to send “a message” to specific countries to urge their residents to keep the states of their U.S. visas. The State Department said it chose nations whose residents have high paces of staying in the U.S. after their visas have terminated.
Under the half year experimental run program beginning December 24, U.S. consular authorities could begin requiring candidates for B-1 and B-2 visas who hail from the chose nations to pay a $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000 bond, as per the impermanent last principle gave by the State Department.
