What Does The Visa Bulletin Mean For You?
The Visa Bulletin is released monthly by the Department of State and it provides a snapshot of visa availability around the world. It is important to note that the bulletin is not a guarantee that a visa will be available when you apply, but it can help you plan your travel accordingly.
For October, visas are generally available for citizens of all countries. The most popular types of visas for this month are B-1/B-2 tourist and business visas.
The bulletin also reflects changes in visa policies from country to country. For instance, Venezuela has reduced its number of tourist visas available by over 50%. This means that if you are traveling to Venezuela this month, you may want to consider applying for a different type of visa.
If you’re looking to travel soon and haven’t yet applied for a visa, the bulletin can give you an idea of which types are likely to be available when you apply.
As we head into the month of October, it’s important to be aware of the Visa Bulletin for October 2018. This bulletin is issued by Visa every few months and affects potential visa applicants around the world. While the specifics of each bulletin vary, knowing what is included in this document will help you make informed decisions about whether or not to apply for a visa at this time. If you are seeking a new passport or planning on traveling outside your home country in the near future, it is important that you check out the latest Visa Bulletin for October 2018 to see if there are any changes that may affect your application.
