Visa Mantis Clearances Extended

The Department of State announced that the validity of Visas Mantis clearances for the following visa categories has been extended:

  • F (student)
  • J (exchange visitors)
  • H (temporary workers)
  • L (intracompany transferees)

Dear Editor:
Is it true that when someone decides to leave the US has to give fingerprints at the moment that he or she has to check in? I know that the US started taking fingerprints when someone comes, now I heard that in order to leave the country you have to give your fingreprints at the airport, is this true?


Dear Editor:
