State Department Plans To Launch Program for Domestic Visa Renewal
May 15, 2023 MTS Law

The State Department seeks to launch a pilot program later this year offering visa renewal options in the US for H-1B specialty occupation workers and other temporary visa holders who are currently required to travel abroad.

According to deputy assistant secretary for visa services in the Bureau of Consular Affairs Julie Stufft, restoring stateside visa renewals will save those applicants from having to leave the country, and will reduce the workload of consular offices abroad.
