Dear Editor:
This is in response to the two letters to the Editor (Mr. Ginsburg and Mr. Frecker) commenting on the problems we are facing in US Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This is not an isolated case. As far as I know, there are hundreds of candidates waiting to receive Immigrant Visas from Riyadh Embassy. They've completed all paperwork, personal interviews and submitted all requested certificates. The office says "Your case is under Administrative Process, once we received your visa, we will let you know". As Mr. John Frecker says, it is true that most of the 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia; but these Immigrant Visa candidates are not Saudis, they are either Indians or Filipinos. If this is a security matter or 9/11-related, the Riyadh Embassy should not call candidates for Personal Interviews and should stop granting Immigrant Visas at the Riyadh Embassy. All these people paid their visa fees and as per procedure, these papers are valid only for one year after the personal interview. If they failed to issue Visas within this time, candiates lose their paid visa fee. Any assistance to solve this delay for issuing visa. I don't think that the Ambassador of US Embassy is aware of this case. For personal reasons, we are unable to provide our case number as requested. This problem began August 2003 when the current Cosular Officer took over her charge in this office.
