You Might Have to Give Your Social Media Details For US Visa

In the reign of Trump the administration have come up with a new rule where the US visa applicants are need to give their social media details.

The authorities have the right to ask the applicants to give their email addresses, phone numbers and 15 years of biographical information.

A State Department Official told Reuters, “This can be requested when more rigorous national security vetting is needed.”

Among all the applicants at least 0.5% visa applicants will be given this questionnaire by the State Department, according to reports.

Though to defend this new system many critics have raised the issue of misusing the personal information which may not be a part of relevant security checks.

Providing the information is given by the applicants are totally voluntary, but if anyone doesn’t provide the necessary information asked then he or she might not get the US visa.

Last year, by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) a proposal to request “social media identifiers” for travelers using the visa waiver program was put forward.

This came into force for some visa waiver travelers in December 2016.

The new questionnaire applies specifically to visa applicants not using the visa waiver program. Evaluation of social media activity is increasingly common, though US employers in Maryland and Illinois were recently banned – thanks to state-level legislation – from asking job applicants for their social media logins.
