    Default Tourist visas to be more difficult to the US

    This doesn't sound good for potential applicants.

    This looks pretty much meaningless for anyone in the DR.

    Yes. It mainly focuses on security and those who are determined to be a security threat will be subject to enhanced security screening. We all know what they are looking for and just who will be getting the enhanced security screening - and it's not Dominicans.

    The visa forum is for Dominican citizens looking for info on getting a visa to other countries. This thread is about the US making requirements for a visitor visa more difficult which might affect Dominicans.

    Keep it DR related. Anything else will be deleted.


    For those that can't see the article.

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is making it tougher for millions of visitors to enter the United States by demanding new security checks before giving visas to tourists, business travelers and relatives of American residents.

    Diplomatic cables sent last week from Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson to all American embassies instructed consular officials to broadly increase scrutiny. It was the first evidence of the “extreme vetting” Mr. Trump promised during the presidential campaign.

    The new rules generally do not apply to citizens of 38 countries — including most of Europe and longstanding allies like Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea — who can be speedily admitted into the United States under the visa waiver program. That program does not cover citizens from any country in the Middle East or Africa.

    Even stricter security checks for people from six predominantly Muslim nations remain on hold because federal courts have temporarily blocked President Trump’s travel ban.
