On December 17, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Armenia will implement new visa application and appointment procedures. The new procedures will make it quicker to apply for a U.S. non-immigrant visa, U.S. Consul in Armenia George Lynn told reporters today.
Under the new procedures, the application fee may be paid by telephone, online at www.usvisa-info.com, or in person at the bank. Visa appointments may be scheduled free of charge by telephone or online.
The Consul informed they hold 70 interviews a day, and about 2,000 Armenian citizens leave for the US every year. He added that the number of applicants was even more ten years ago.
