The press statement issued by the American Embassy in
Kathmandu on Monday urged the
applicants to avoid eyeglasses in the photos for their documents in order to avoid delay in the processing of applications, as the new step comes into effect from November 1, 2016.
The applicants wearing eyeglasses in their photos for medical reasons too will be considered, but on account of medical grounds. Such applicants are asked to submit a signed statement from their medical attendants for the processing, states the press release.
