US Visa Bond will not Affect India

us visa bond will not affect india

A look at the official list of countries whose travellers (leisure and business) have to furnish a US visa bond has revealed that India is not part of it, putting to rest speculations that Indian travellers might also be affected.

Details of a US Department of State (Department) visa bond pilot programme ‘with specified parameters’ was published in the Federal Register on November 24, 2020. Which means travellers from certain countries will have to furnish a bond (in the amount of $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000 as specified in the Register) as a condition of visa issuance.

This temporary final rule is effective from December 24, 2020 through June 24, 2021.

According to sources, one of the key reasons for this pilot project is to discourage people from overstaying their temporary business visitor/tourist visa.

Speculations were rife that countries such as India or Nigeria will also be affected by the pilot project.

However, a look at the list of countries mentioned in the Pilot Project revealed India is not on the list.

Indians who fall under the specified visa categories will not have to furnish a bond.

Nigeria too is off the list.

The United States Mission in Nigeria can confirm that Nigeria is not currently part of the pilot visa bond program. Read more:
