The Bureau of Immigration (BI) will undergo various internal changes that may consequently delay visa application and work permit processing times. The BI will implement the following changes:
• Visa application hearings will be scheduled through a raffle. These outcomes will be displayed outside of the hearing officers’ rooms and will be nonnegotiable.
• The Board of Commissioners will now receive and assess all pending applications endorsed by the Visa and Special Permits Task Force.
• The BI will once again issue Orders of Approval or Denial and approve Consolidated General Application Forms.
