The US Embassy started early issuance of multivisas for 10 years, Novosti-Armenia news agency said, referring to the New Times (Novoye Vremya) newspaper.
The US embassy had the opportunity to start a new visa process since January 1, 2015 on the basis of the recently reached agreement with the government of Armenia, but chose to accelerate it and starting from December 22, 2014, the citizens of Armenia were issued "long-term" permission to enter the US, according to the US diplomatic mission.
Armenian citizens, who have applied for a nonimmigrant visa of B category, can get multivisas valid for up to 10 years for both business and leisure trips. Participants of exchange programs, eligible for a visa of F, M or J categories, and persons under their tutelage from now on will be issued multivisas valid up to 5 years. It is noteworthy that the fee for visa services remained unchanged.
