Bangalore: The U.S. consulate has come up with some changes in the visa process and from now on a visa interview will be a two-day affair instead of one, reports Yahoo. According to officials, this new approach will make the process more easy and smooth.



On the first day, photos will be taken and finger prints collected. The interview will be conducted on the second day. "On the first day, a person applying for the visa will have to visit the offsite facilitation centre to get the photograph clicked and give his fingerprints," said Lauren B. Armenise, vice-consul, Consulate General of the US, in Calcutta, reports Yahoo. "The second visit will be made to the consulate for the interview."



Earlier visa-seekers had to spend one whole day at the consulate, but now on each of the days, they will have to spend just one hour, reports officials. The US embassies and consulates in India have introduced the new method.



"People will now be able to make appointments by calling up the call centres. They will be able to telephone and get dates according to their convenience. The two dates could be between a day and 10 days apart," said Wendy Kennedy, consular section chief of the Consulate General of the United States of America.



"A call centre has come up at Hyderabad, apart from the one at Noida," she added.
