Eye scans considered for all American international travellers

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

The US Department of Homeland Security has proposed that the US start collecting fingerprints and eye scans from all foreign travellers at US airports as they leave the country, the Washington Post reported.

Currently, the United States requests biometric data, fingerprints and digital photos, from arriving air and sea travellers with American visas, to ensure that person matches the individual who was given the American visa overseas.

Canadians and Mexicans are currently exempt from this requirement.

The American Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in American visa and immigration services.
