Program to facilitate Visa’s process for AmCham partners

visaDue to changes and a new system implemented by consulates worldwide, you will see that our program has made necessary adjustments to facilitate the process:

For the business partners of AmCham, whom have been associated and collaborated with us for at least one year, have access to this program. It facilitates the process for nonimmigrant visas (B1/B2) with the United States Consular Section in Guatemala; strictly for business, commercial activities, training or entertainment purposes.

The program allows those interested to avoid the long process, requiring a signed letter from the General Manager, and/or legal representative and/or Chairman of the board and/or someone more assigned. This should show detailed information of the person requesting the Visa.

For this program to help your company, its necessary that interested General Mangers (Or whom ever is more appropriate to sign) to send us a signed letter addressed to the United States Consular Section in Guatemala. This will be used in any future visa request, specifically for matching and verifying signatures with the ones in the letter. This allows the US Consular section know its an authentic request from your company. Therefore, the letter must include signatures from the appropriate people and printed on paper with company’s letterhead.

The letter must be sent to Roberto Molina (Visas Coordinator), without the necessary signatures you will not be able to choose and continue with this program.
