Heraldo Muñoz and the eventual abolition of visa waiver: ‘Guarantee we can’t lose’ | Rapid Dynamic Group Programs

The US Visa Waiver Program for Chile could be canceled, due to the scarcity of Chilean judicial information being handed over to North American police.

“Hay un riesgo, es un programa que permite visitar Estados Unidos sin los trámites de entrevistas, es una suerte de vía rápida de aprobación de la visa de ingreso para turistas, gente del mundo de los negocios, visit un gran gente esque United State. There are 40 countries around the world that have this visa. The problem is sharing information about people who have committed crimes to prevent it from being used by individuals who will commit crimes in the United States. These reviews have been done before. I hope it will be resolved, it is a guarantee that we must not lose.”

Last Tuesday, the group of Chilean and American parliamentarians held a meeting with Ambassador Bernadette Meehan in the National Congress, regarding the Visa Waiver Program and the problems of its implementation.

Lawmakers have revealed that if the government does not solve the problem of the scarcity of Chilean judicial information being handed over to North American police, the Visa Waiver Program for Chile could be canceled at the end of the year.

This program, in force since May 2014, speeds up entry into the United States, since Chileans traveling for tourism or business do not need an appointment for an interview at the Santiago embassy, ​​nor do they have to pay a $160 fee. to apply for this document.

However, the United States does not have access to all information regarding visa applicants, specifically judicial details regarding whether the applicant has been convicted of a criminal act. Added to this is the increase in crimes committed by Chileans in the United States.

“Reviewed in December and I understand that a delegation from the US Department of Security will now come to meet with our authorities. The field must be prepared so that between now and that visit, we can have information and we can respond appropriately. It does not mean violating people’s personal data Rather, it is about finding out those who have committed crimes, have been tried or have been sentenced so as not to enter the United States to commit crimes.”
