The program is only provided to applicants for renewing their US visas (not for new applicants) and applies to applicants meeting the following criteria:

  • Citizens or residents of Bangladesh currently residing in Bangladesh;
  • Applying for same type of visa as previous issued on or after January 1, 2008;
  • No visa refusals in any category since their previous visa;
  • No previous visas revoked, lost or stolen;
  • No violations of US immigration laws and/or regulations;
  • No change of details such as name, date and place of birth, and nationality since the last visa was issued.
