The United States of America’s ambassador to Ghana has reassured of his country’s commitment to Ghana Students who want to study in the US.
Virginia Palmer, who serves as the US ambassador to Ghana, said the US embassy was working around the clock to expedite visa applications for prospective students who want to study in the US. He explained that the US embassy was committed to ensuring that the visas of these students do not lag behind due to visa issues. Speaking at the opening of the 2022 EducationUSA College Fair in Accra, Virginia Palmer noted that interested applicants could access visas through email applications.
“I hope you’ll enjoy the opportunity to explore the educational opportunities offered in the US and the bridges that are built during studies in the US. When American students come to Ghana, they build lifelong bridges that benefit the bilateral relationship for years to come.”
“So if you already had a visa, but your visa has expired, you don’t need to come back to the Embassy, you can just send it to us by mail, and those renewals are very straightforward. And in terms of the backlog overall, because I know there is a lot of interest in that. I have taken every officer with a Consular commission and put them to work on the visa line, and the Consular Section has opened up lots of appointments for more non-immigrant visas,” she added.
