American embassy and consulate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) launch a new appointment service for anyone applying for a non-immigrant visa to the US.
"Starting January 6, 2013, applicants will work, online or by phone, with a service provider to schedule an interview, pay the visa application fee, and arrange for the delivery of documents and passports," the US embassy in Abu Dhabi reported.
Under the new rules, applicants will thus be able to complete the application process online and have their passport delivered to an Empost office anywhere in the UAE.
"The entire process can be done 24 hours a day from the comfort of home using the online system. During daytime hours, applicants can also get assistance from a live operator call centre with services in Arabic, English, and Farsi," the embassy said.
