First discussed by U.S. Mission in March of 2012, the Interview Waiver Program (IWP) was touted as a process by which the U.S. Department of State (DOS) continues to work to streamline the visa process for Indian applicants. The IWP seeks to allow qualified individuals to apply for certain classes of nonimmigrant visas without being interviewed in-person by a U.S. Consular Officer at the U.S. Consulate Offices in India. Due to the recent success of the IWP, as well as the increased visa demand in India, the U.S. Mission recently announced that it will seek to expand the IWP. The IWP seeks to save financial resources for the U.S. government and focuses on ensuring the safety and security of the United States by ensuring that those individuals that come do not pose a threat to our Nation’s Security.
