US Ambassador to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Linda Taglialatela, announced new information as it relates to Grenadian’s and renewal of American Visas at a press conference in Grenada earlier this morning at the Cabinet Room, Ministerial Complex.
The United States Ambassador announced that there has been a wavier for Grenadians, as it relates to renewal of Visa’s.
Students who wish to renew their visas, and who satisfy the requirements may qualify for interview waiver if they are applying to continue attendance at the same institution, or will continue the same major course of study at a different institution.
Grenada is the second country to be granted the interview waiver. Barbados was announced as the first back in August.
Once those requirements are met, the process can be done on-line and the Passport sent to Barbados via courier service.
Prime Minister Mitchell in giving brief remarks said, “the wavier is good news for all Grenadians based on the present cost of air travel.”
The Foreign Affairs Minister Hon. Peter David, also spoke on the matter saying it is indeed welcoming news.
