U.S. Embassy Dhaka Introduces New Services For Immigrant Visa Applicants | In Bangla
DHAKA, NOVEMBER 6, 2014 -- The U.S. Embassy Dhaka has introduced a new system for Immigrant Visa collection and post-interview document submission through a new customer-friendly website www.ustraveldocs.com/bd.
In the past, document submission and visa collection services were centralized in Dhaka. The U.S. Embassy realizes that our Immigrant Visa applicants live throughout Bangladesh. For many, a trip to the capital city represents a significant disruption to their professional and personal lives. Now applicants can reduce their trips to Dhaka and utilize a Visa Collection Center closer to home. These Centers are located in Sylhet, Chittagong, and Dhaka.
To choose a Visa Collection Center and avail themselves of document drop-off and visa pick-up services, Immigrant Visa applicants must create a profile at www.ustraveldocs.com/bd. Only the main applicant needs to create a profile. For example, if your brother is petitioning for you, and your spouse and children are accompanying, you only need to make a profile for yourself. A detailed instruction on how to create a profile is given here.
The rollout of these services at the Sylhet and Chittagong locations will happen in two phases.
First, on November 9, 2014, all Immigrant Visa applicants whose visas have been approved will be able to collect their passports from the Visa Collection Center indicated in their profile.
Following the first stage, on December 1, 2014, all Immigrant Visa applicants will be able to submit their post-interview documents through the Visa Collection Center. Your interviewing Consular Officer will provide you with a list of the required documents.
