Report: Interviews Will Be Required for Some Green Card Applicants

In-person interviews will be required for certain green card applicants under President Donald Trump's "extreme vetting" measures as a result of his January immigration travel ban executive order, The Hill reported Saturday. 

The requirement will affect workers in the United States currently holding a visa who wish to apply for a green card, which gives them permanent residency in the country, according to a spokesperson with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Interviews, already a procedure, were waived "most of the time," immigration attorney William Stock told Politico in an article published Friday. 

In-person interviews will also be required for those seeking provisional status prior to receiving a green card. This includes those who have family members, who are refugees or who receive asylum in the U.S.

A USCIS spokesperson told Politico the policy, which agency officials say will start October 1, will expand into other categories on an "incremental" basis. And, the process to get a green card will also more than likely take longer as a result of the changes.
