In a statement, the US ambassador Meg Whitman said the new move aimed at reducing the visa appointment backlog. Whiteman said that for one to qualify for the program, he/she/they must be applying for the same visa category, and their visa should not have expired more than four years ago. “Effective immediately, those applying for tourist/business, student, or crew visas categories may be eligible for a visa renewal without an interview,” she said. The expanded Interview Waiver Program for non-immigrant visas follows Meg Whitman's pledge to reduce the backlog of non-immigrant visa interview appointments.
