Visa applicants will need to supply social media information

It seems like every week there is another new immigration policy in the U.S. Although many Miami area residents are immigrants themselves, they understand how hard it can be for new arrivals to get their feet on the ground. The State Department recently announced a new policy that will apply toward those who are applying for a visa.

A new visa application has been issued by the U.S. State Department. As part of this application, additional information is requested, including social media identifiers for almost all applicants. The change will affect nearly all immigrant and nonimmigrant visa applications, including those who are coming to the U.S. for education or business reasons. The number affected could reach into the tens of millions. The application requests phone number histories for the past five years, email accounts and social media information. The State Department says they are requesting this information in order to improve their screening process for terrorists.

Those who are coming to the U.S. for work, education or to move here permanently need to have a visa. A legal expert who is skilled in immigration can help their client with their visa needs. There are several different types of visas available and it can be confusing to determine which visa to get and how to apply for it. An attorney can help their client navigate the complicated visa immigration system and get them the visa they need.

Immigrants to the U.S. are important members of our society in both Miami and across the U.S. They play vital roles in businesses, enhance our education system and give their families a fresh start. Although it may seem like immigrants are constantly affected by rule changes in the government, there are still ways to make it happen for those who want to live and work in the U.S.
