The U.S. State Department announces that it will offer stateside visa renewals this year

Great news for Indian and other nationals stuck in the U.S. due to backlogs in consular visa processing

The State Department will launch a pilot program later this year offering visa renewal options in the US for H-1B specialty occupation workers and other temporary visa holders who are currently required to travel abroad.

Restoring stateside visa renewals, which were discontinued in 2004, will save those applicants from having to leave the country, and will reduce the workload of consular offices abroad.
