U.S. visa applications for citizens and permanent residents surged by a 2% to 3.2 million in January, according to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
The figures come as the Trump administration seeks to boost visa issuance to boost U.A.E. economies and boost security in the region.
Visa applications from U.K. citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs) increased by 1% to 1.1 million.
A separate OCHA report from December said the U,S.
and Europe had already increased visas for PRs to more than 20,000.
Visa application numbers for the month reached an all-time high of 5.5 million, which equates to about 10,000 people applying for each.
The OCHA has been warning about the risks of overstaying a U.F.O. visa and seeking an extension.
The OCA is tasked with identifying the most urgent needs in the U of A’s humanitarian response and supporting the country in its efforts to cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
“The OCLA has issued a warning to U. FO visa holders to ensure they are not being granted the necessary extensions,” said OCHA spokesman Eric Kohn.
It’s been a challenging year for the U and its citizens to get through the coronvirus pandemics, but this year’s jump is more than expected, according OCHA Director of Operations Richard L. Larkin.
The number of people applying is up by nearly 200,000 from the previous year.
That increase was driven by a spike in the number of applicants from the U., Canada, and other nations.
The number of applications from the OCA was up by roughly 8%, which was largely attributed to a higher number of PRs applying for U.M. students and staff.
Applicants from the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand were also more likely to apply.
The total number of visa applications jumped from 5.6 million in 2015 to 6.9 million in 2016, which was an increase of about 3.6%.
