Infopark and the Kerala Chapter of Indo-American Chamber of Commerce jointly organised an interactive programme in Infopark campus on US visa procedures.
US Consulate Officers, Heather M. Smith and Mark W Zanolli, conducted the session for the representatives of Infopark companies.
During their interaction, the officials revealed that with the new system installed in the Consulate across the country, US visa applicants will no longer have to wait for hours outside the consulate.
Zanolli said the new Global Support Strategy (GSS) programme that they had implemented simplifies the process of applying for an US visa in India.
The era of the five-hour wait outside the Consulates is over and the visa application process can now be completed in an hour.
The programme was implemented in India as part of our efforts to upgrade our services across the world, he said.
