U.S. Immigration Processing to Resume in Havana

State Department to hold full visa interviews by 2023.

State Department officials announced last week that the United States will resume full immigration visa processing at their embassy in Havana beginning in 2023.

The U.S. suspended visa processing in Cuba in 2017 due to tensions with the Communist-led island nation. However, since President Biden took office in 2021, American and Cuban officials have been intently discussing solutions for the record number of Cuban migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexican border. President Biden’s administration hopes that resuming full immigration processing in Havana will help reduce the number of migrants.

The U.S. Embassy in Havana restarted its Family Reunification Parole Program in August, increasing embassy personnel in order to do so.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they being to implement commitments under the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection.
  • That Secretary Blinken would seek God’s wisdom as he heads the Department of State.
