Wait times for a US visa interview is now over a year for the top 10 inbound source markets.

It is now 400 days says U.S. Travel Association President Geoff Freeman.

“Wait times are still excessively high despite marked improvements in countries like India.”

The top source markets in 2022 were Canada, Mexico and the UK.
