The U.S. Embassy announced measures to facilitate the process, here is how it will work.

Through social networks the U.S. Embassy announced new measures to expedite the processing of the U.S. visa. This video announces the arrival of new members of different nationalities to help in the management of the document.

“Consular professionals from around the world have arrived in our consular section to help process visa applications. Our priority is to reduce waiting times,” they say.

Ambassador Luis Gilberto Murillo, recently in an interview with EL TIEMPO, told some details of how the process is progressing and even shared two new ideas that are being contemplated to present to the North American country.

Although the Government has reiterated that this is a process that may take years, it has already advanced actions to try to speed it up. On March 8, for example, the first technical meeting was held in this regard.

The meeting was attended by the vice-chancellor, Francisco Coy; ambassador Murillo; the director of Migration Colombia, Carlos Fernando García and representatives of the National Police, the Attorney General’s Office, the Civil Aeronautics and different departments of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the meeting reviewed the requirements of the admission program, according to the five pillars established by the U.S. government: counterterrorism, law enforcement, traveler screening, immigration enforcement and travel/identity documents.
