According to United States Ambassador Margaret Whitman, getting a visa interview online would now take a few weeks.

“The good news is if you go online today, you can get a visa interview by end of December,” she said.

Prior to now, complaints of past-due visa interviews with others waiting more than five months for a date had been made.

Whitman claimed that when she assumed control of her office, she discovered a backlog of 24,000 unfinished visas that would have taken until June 2024 to process.

“When I came in, you couldn’t get an interview until June 2024, all of this was due to Covid-19, we got everyone to come together. I fingerprinted one morning, showing that everyone has to get back in the game,” she said

In September, US Embassy in Nairobi announced the expansion of the Interview Waiver Programme for non-immigrant visas.

“Effective immediately, those applying for tourist/business, student, or crew visas categories may be eligible for a visa renewal without an interview,” she said.
