New Delhi, Jan 4 (IBNS) The US Mission to India on Friday announced the launch of its new service tool - 'Check My Visa Application Status' - where visa applicants can check their cases online.

"The U.S. Mission to India is pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of State's new system, CEAC Status Check, can now be accessed at - ´Check My Visa Application Status´," said an official release on Friday.

"This tool, which allows all visa applicants to verify 24/7 the status of their case online, offers better customer service to visa applicants and continued transparency in our processing," it said.

This initiative follows other recent enhancements, including offsite fingerprinting and photography services and the expanded Interview Waiver Program.

"All these initiatives are aimed at building capacity to accept more visa applications over the coming years, improving customer service, and facilitating legitimate travel between India and the United States. Bolstering people-to-people ties through travel is a cornerstone of the U.S.-India partnership," the release said.

The CEAC Status Check site is a global website that allows visa applicants world-wide to access up-to-date and accurate information about their cases. Applicants simply enter the CEAC barcode or case number and the location where the interview occurred to check the status of their visa. This new CEAC Status Check replaces any previous status tracking websites.
