  • Trumps Executive Order : 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1222

    The Consular site still tells me that i'm eligible for Drop Box. Is it just a matter of time before the site is updated? I see that the site is updated with other information from the EO, but not the IWP update. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/index.html?firstTime=No

    I was scheduled to travel to India this Friday for 3 weeks to get my stamping done as my stamping expired in August 2016. With so much of uncertainty around, is it worth taking the risk?

    Also, the EO says:
    The Secretary of State shall immediately suspend the Visa Interview Waiver Program and ensure compliance with section 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1222, which requires that all individuals seeking a nonimmigrant visa undergo an in-person interview, subject to specific statutory exceptions.

    What is section 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1222 ? Found the article but could not build an interpretation out of it https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/...-0-0-5161.html

    Any expert opinion?

    The suggestion by my employer and attorney is to postpone travels for sometime until the dust settles and we have a clear picture of what the rules are going to be like. I suggest you stay put for some more time rather than taking the risk.
