Iranian applicants of non-immigrant visas, object that the procedure through
which the non-immigrant visa interview appointments is conducted, in the
designated US Embassies, particularly in Ankara, Turkey, is not only
inefficient but also unfair. However, we are aware, and do appreciate that the
US Embassy in Ankara has kindly designated a limited number of slots for urgent
non-immigrant visa interviews, specially for students.
Under the current circumstances the regular way to make a consular interview
appointment, in Ankara, is via phone calls on the first Monday of each month,
and the only group of applicants who are absolutely unable to make an
appointment through this system, are unfortunately the ones that are indeed in
need of that. Regretfully enough, there are agencies inside and outside of Iran
that unethically acquire the entire number of available slots for each month
and offer them to the distressed, anxious Iranian applicants for an
unreasonable price ($300 and up).
We believe that the US authorities are not aware of such illegal and unethical
transactions. Thus, we are requesting you and/or any person(s) in charge, to
take a prompt and appropriate action to address this issue in a way that best
suits and respects the Iranian applicants and best represents and demonstrates
the true spirit of American justice and philanthropy.
