Certain visa applicants, including students and workers, are no longer required to appear in person for interviews with the United States.

Indian students, who make up approximately 20% of all overseas students in the US, are qualified for the waiver.

In order to qualify for the expanded interview waiver program, applicants for these visa classes must have already received a US visa in any category.

Additionally, they should never have had a US visa denied, and have no indications of possible visa ineligibility or past visa ineligibility. 

With this action, the backlog of visa requests will be cleared up and the workforce shortfall will be addressed.
