The U.S.A allows renewal of American visas without an interview to facilitate the procedure in Cameroon

In Cameroon, it is now possible to renew your American visa without an interview.

This possibility is offered through the Interview Waiver Program just launched by the United States Embassy in the country. “This is a new mechanism for Cameroon. It existed elsewhere,” breathes a source within the American chancellery. This program is currently open to visitors (B1/B2 visa), students (F visa), academic exchange visitors (M, J visas), temporary or seasonal workers (H, L visas) and crews and individuals in transit (combined C1/D visas only), specifies the embassy in a press release published on February 28.

It is designed, we learn, to facilitate legitimate travel for qualified travelers whose previous US visa expired within the last 24 months or will expire within the next three months. They can now renew their visa by mail and without an interview. They can therefore access the said program by following the normal visa application procedure at the following address: Besides the application, applicants must submit all their passports since the last visa to the US Embassy through DHL Yaoundé. The embassy recommends submitting the application at least one month before the planned travel date “to allow sufficient time for processing.” Successful applicants will then be invited to present themselves at the embassy to pay the reciprocity fee, before the visa is printed and returned by DHL.

The launch of this program is part of the desire of the American authorities to facilitate the procedure for obtaining visas, as part of cooperation between Washington and Yaoundé. “The consular section remains committed to making the visa application process easily accessible to as many applicants as possible, in order to continue to build strong ties between the United States and Cameroon,” says Matthew Taylor, head of the consular section, consular section at the American diplomatic mission, cited in the press release.
