Social Media Identifiers to be Collected from U.S. Visa Applicants

The Department of State revised its immigrant and nonimmigrant visa application forms to now request social media identifiers.  Specifically, in addition to information already requested on visa applications, such as travel history, family member information, and previous addresses, most U.S. visa applicants worldwide will now be required to also provide details regarding names or “handles” used on social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) in an effort to confirm the identity of visa applicants.

For more information, please visit the Department of State website, FAQ about Social Media Identifiers.
