Cuba condemns US non-compliance in granting annual visas

Havana, Apr 6 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Josefina Vidal on Wednesday strongly condemned the sustained failure of the United States (for five years) to grant no less than 20,000 visas per year to migrants under bilateral agreements.

On Twitter, Ms. Vidal remarked that the few visas granted by Washington are processed in Georgetown, Guyana, and not at its Consulate in Havana, while it pressures other nations to limit travel and transit of Cubans for their territories.

Meanwhile, the White House “encourages the irregular, insecure and disorderly flow of migrants through the Cuban Adjustment Act and maximum pressure blockade measures against Cuba,” Ms. Vidal stressed.

Plus, she recalled how the United States maintains the processing and granting of visitor visas at its Consulate in Havana, which when granted, also in third countries, are no longer for multiple entries, but for a single one.

On Wednesday, US embassy in Havana announced that it will resume the limited immigrant visa processing in May 2022, called off since 2017 on the grounds of mysterious “sonic aggressions” and alleged “health incidents” of US diplomats.

At the moment, the US embassy will only process applicants of the IR-5 category (parent of US citizens).
