US Embassy suspends visa interview waivers

The Interview Waiver Program (IWP), also called the Visa Interview Waiver Program, is a program managed by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs under which, under some circumstances, interview requirements can be waived for some non-immigrant visa applicants.

What this means is that if travel is necessary and your visa needs to be renewed, you must attend visa interviews like first timers.
