The United States Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbeanis responding to the calls of the nearly 11,000 fans of its Facebook page. With the busy summer travel season approaching, the Embassy will launch two official discussion threads on its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/USEmbassyBarbados) to respond to the scores of questions we receive on visa issues and American citizen services. Starting Tuesday, April 19, people are able to post their questions about visas and American citizen services in the two discussion threads which will be titled American Citizens Services Q&A and Visas Q&A. Consular officers will check the two threads on a regular basis to answer questions. Consul General Eugene Sweeney said of the initiative, “We see these new discussion threads as a way to demystify the world of visas and passports via social media.  Please check us out and feel free to ask us your questions about how to travel to theUnited States.” The discussions were launched with a live chat event on Tuesday, April 19, whereEastern Caribbeanresidents will be able to get real-time answers in the two discussion threads. People wishing to participate must be signed up as fans of the Embassy’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/USEmbassyBarbados).
