US implements stricter screening methods for visa applicants

The US has started implementing stricter screening methods for visa applicants, like asking some about their social media accounts.

Other information that maybe demanded includes “details about family members and a longer history of past travel, employment, and contact information,” said a State Department official.

However, the changes will “affect only a fraction of one percent” of over 13mn annual visa applicants, she added.
