Americans Now Believe Easing the Visa Process for Brazilians Will Help Their Economy

Brazilian passport, US visa Brazilians should be the beneficiaries of a less severe policy to allow their entrance in the United Sates. According to an official release, the US Department of State is committed to improving the visa process, decreasing interview wait times in Brazil and increasing the number of visas issued.

“We are excited to take these efforts even further in support of President Barack Obama’s travel and tourism initiatives, opening the door to new jobs and exports. More international visitors to America mean more revenue for our cities and states, and we are making it easier for tourists from other countries to experience all that America has to offer”, pointed out the release.

Demand for visas has increased dramatically in recent years, so the Obama administration has made it a priority to increase capacity while maintaining the US strict security standards.

“By extending interview hours, adding Saturday appointments, hiring additional staff, and opening new facilities, we have reduced visa wait times in countries around the world”.

The announcement means consular officers will now be able to waive interview requirements on a case-by-case basis for many tourists and business travelers who have already spent billions of dollars in the United States.

Likewise this will make it easier for these visitors to return, stay in US hotels, eat in US restaurants, buy American products and enjoy all that America has to offer.

The update to US visa requirements will encourage greater investment in the United States, helping to create jobs and power American growth without compromising the safety and security of the American people, concludes the release.
