The United States may include Gujarati language in its visa procedure for the convenience of people from the state planning to travel there, a senior official has said.
“We have included several regional languages of India in our visa procedure and would consider to include Gujarati language too if required,” US consulate’s vice consul Cheryl Collins said, according to a release issued here by Travel Agents Association of India’s (TAAI) Saurashtra Chapter.
Collins was here yesterday to meet the members of TAAI during a seminar organised jointly by the US Consulate and TAAI’s Saurashtra Chapter.
“Nearly 60 travel agents, all official members of TAAI Saurashtra, discussed their problems with the vice consul of America,” TAAI’s Saurashtra chapter president Devendra Shah said in the release. Nearly ten thousand people from Saurashtra visit America every year and keeping that in mind, the vice consul assured the travel agents that they would think about including Gujarati language in their visa procedure, Shah said.
