The program is open to all Pakistani nationals, regardless of age, who currently hold or have held a valid B1/B2 visa within the previous 48 months.

 Pakistani nationals aged 45 and up were the only ones allowed to vote in the past.

In addition, applicants who have previously held a U.S. visa and are applying for a student or petition-based work visa will be eligible to skip the interview until 2023.

As part of an effort to improve service to customers and streamline the renewal of tourist and business visas for eligible Pakistani nationals, the process no longer requires them to undergo an interview.

Some visa interviewees may be asked to attend an interview at the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate General after submitting their visa petitions, as this is a requirement under U.S. law.

To find out if you qualify for a waiver from your interview, please visit the United States Mission in Pakistan’s website.
