Indy Chamber News Archives

Recently, on December 18th, 2015, the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 2029) was signed into law.

Though at this point it remains unclear how Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and other agencies will take steps to implement and enforce the new laws, it remains unclear at this juncture what impact this change will have n other visa processing. However, it is highly likely that this new law will impact those that are seeking Visitor (B-1/B-2) Visas (and other Visa types) at U.S. Consulte offices abroad.
