The measure follows a request from the country’s Center for Disease Control and applies to those who request permanent or temporary residence
The Citizenship and Immigration Service of USA announced this Tuesday, the 14th, that it will start requesting from October 1st vaccination against the Covid-19 for all who apply for permanent residence or other visas. The determination follows guidance from the country’s Center for Disease Control and will ask for proof of complete immunization to immigrants. The rule excludes children who apply for visas and people who cannot receive vaccinations due to a medical condition. Those who come from countries that do not yet offer immunization will also be exempt from showing documentation. All of them will, however, need to undergo routine medical examinations to show that they have no health problems that would jeopardize their visas. Covid-19 tests may also be administered to applicants.
