Visa Applicants Need To Provide Their Social Media Details To Apply For US

US has adopted a new law according to which all the applicants of US now have to give away their social media information to apply for US visas.
Not just social media names, applicants will have also need to provide email addresses and phone numbers worth of 5 years as per the State Department regulations.
Almost 14.7 million people were estimated to get affected, when last year 2018, this rule was proposed by the authorities.
This rule will not be applicable for certain diplomatic and official visa applicants.
Although, general people who will be travelling to US for any work purpose or study purpose will have to provide their details to the authorities.
The department though reportedly said, “We are constantly working to find mechanisms to improve our screening processes to protect US citizens, while supporting legitimate travel to the United States.”
Previously, these data only needed to be given by the people who were from the country controlled by any terrorist groups.
But this time, all the applicants need to write their social account names on a list of social media platforms. Not only that they have to give their accounts on any sites not listed.
According to an official spokesperson, if someone got caught of lying about their social media information will have to face serious consequences in the immigration.
In March 2018, Trump’s admin first raised this rule.
