DOS Expands Interview Waiver (Drop Box) Eligibility
March 15, 2021
DOS announced that it has extended its policy to expand interview waiver eligibility for applicable individuals applying for a nonimmigrant visa in the same classification until December 31, 2021. This policy had been slated to expire on March 31, 2021. Moreover, applicants whose nonimmigrant visa expired within 48 months (rather than 12 or 24 months) are eligible.
