US Visa Applicants May be Required to Disclose Social Media Accounts

Bloomberg recently reported that there is now a proposal for a State Department form which would require all US visa applicants to disclose their social media handles.

The proposal, which is open for public comment for 60 days, is said to be broader than previous filings where disclosure of such information was voluntary and only for applicants identified for further scrutiny.

It is said that the new forms will require applicants to provide identifiers they have used on certain social media platforms during the five years preceding the date of application. Platforms may be added or removed as the system develops.
