The United States is not just a land of opportunities. But is also a major tourist attraction. Besides people moving to the country for studies, and employment, some people go there to enjoy the major attractions there. Indians make up to a major share of people who go to the United States.
As a piece of good news, the United States administration is said to be working on bringing down the waiting period to get a visa. There is a massive waiting period to get an American visa. However, the waiting period for the visa depends on the kind like student, H-1B, and others
As per the media reports, the US administration wants to reduce the visa waiting period and working on this. The exercise for the same was also started as per the information. With the required exercise getting started, we might hear about this soon.
The media reports say that the tourism sector is not performing as expected. The Covid pandemic left a big impact on the sector and it is yet to come out of it. The current performance of the sector is said to be not that great and performing less than what it did in pre-pandemic time. When other nations like Canada, the United Kingdom, and others are shining, the US is lagging.
To give the required boost to the tourism sector, the administration is reportedly working on reducing the waiting period for visas. On the other hand, it is also said that visa holders from other nations are also given an exemption.
If the waiting period of the visas is brought down then it would be a big relief for the people. Right now, the waiting period for a tourist visa stands at 400 days. So the work started by the administration to reduce the waiting period would be a big relief.
On the other side, there is also a travel deficit in the United States. The data says that the money tourists spend in America came down severely over the years. The locals are spending more money in the nation than the tourists who go there to enjoy the tourist destinations there.
