St. Vincent and the Grenadines (iWitness News) – The United States Embassy in Barbados has announced interview visa waivers for qualified citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines as of today, Wednesday, a courtesy from which SVG and Dominica were omitted more than two years ago.
The embassy said that the waiver is part of the United States Government’s continuing efforts to facilitate travel with their Caribbean partners, improve customer service during the COVID-19 pandemic, and streamline the visa renewal process.
“Passport holders from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with the exception of beneficiaries of the citizen by investment programmes, may qualify for a visa renewal interview waiver if their previous visa expired within the past two years and they are applying for the same visa category as their previous visa.”
The applicant must be physically present in their home country or within the consular district of the U.S. Embassy in Barbados to avail themselves of this option.
The consular district comprises of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Martin (French), and SVG.
