Every foreign citizen is required to apply for a visa to get entry to the United States of America. However, there are certain countries that are exempted from this rule. Under the U.S waiver program, citizens of particular countries with valid e-passport are permitted to stay in the US for up to 90 days without a visa. There are various types of visa depending on the intent of the visit – tourist, work, study, immigration, etc. Applicants need to book a US visa appointment in person at the visa application centre and for the visa interview at the embassy/ consulate in their residing country.
