The US administration has announced that the applicants seeking the US visa must submit details regarding their social media history. Presenting, the previous email addresses along with phone numbers, will be a part of the vetting practice now. This is necessary for preventing the entry of persons who are a danger to the country. There is a demand in the new rules. All the persons who are arriving in the US by using non-immigrant visa will have to give answers to many questions.

What is the effect?

The State Department has estimated that these new visa norms will impact  on 710,000 immigrants. Moreover, 14 million visa applicants in other categories are going to receive an impact. There is a condition to provide identifications and handles of the social media accounts. In addition, they must give details regarding the numbers in use, in phones and mobiles during the past five years.

Set of questions
