US Immigration Updates: New Requirement for US VISA 2020: Recently, the US Department of State refreshed its immigration approach. As indicated by new immigration rules, visa applicants need to give their social media history of the most recent five years while filling on the web visa application structures. Social Media History of past five years is presently requested both outsider and non-settler visas.
Visa applicants can see an extra inquiry “Do you have a social media nearness?” particularly while filling structures DS-160 and DS-260. This inquiry is normally noticeable under “Address and Phone” tab of the online visa application structure.
A rundown of 20 famous social media stages is given under this inquiry. Applicants can pick stages they have been utilizing over the most recent five years and enter their social media divider/profile URL/Link with the goal that US immigration may check their exercises during the past five years. Social media handler or identifier is sufficient, there is no compelling reason to give secret word of social media accounts.

Applicants need to pick every social medium stages which they have been utilizing throughout the previous five years.
There is an alternative of “NONE” toward the finish of the social media stages list which can be utilized if the applicant isn’t utilizing any social media stage. Nonetheless, choosing NONE may look suspicious to the immigration department. Albeit social media history isn’t required and applicant can pick NONE yet this will give motivation to US immigration for visa application refusal.
Moreover, it isn’t obligatory to have accounts on all these 20 stages. In the event that an applicant does not recollect his record identifier, he can enter the appropriate response “obscure” or “I don’t review” or some other fitting answer.
All non-outsider and migrant visa applicants will be required to respond to these inquiries identifying with their social media profiles, aside from applicants applying for the accompanying sorts of non-foreigner visas: A-1, A-2, C-2, C-3 (with the exception of specialists, workers, or individual representatives of certify authorities), G-1, G-2, G3, G-4, NATO-1, NATO-2, NATO-3, NATO-4, NATO-5, or NATO-6 visas.
The new change is going to influence a large number of US visa applicants. Thus, there will be more postponement in preparing of visa applicants. What’s more, obviously, many visa applicants will see a refusal for US visa because of their social media profiles.
