US Visa Entry Vetting by Social Media

The U.S State Dept has announced plans to inspect social media contacts of foreign visitors from certain countries entering on Visas. Our immigration lawyers have been made aware that those requesting US visas have been asked for their passwords and usernames by Customs and Border Patrol and now it seems the government is taking this a step further by requesting applicants to disclose their usernames and/or passwords dating back several years so that one’s social media history can be reviewed before determining if one is able to enter the US on a visa.

Our immigration attorneys are keeping up to date on current changes to immigration law and policy.
