Dear Ministry of Education and Sports,

Like many Ugandan students studying or want to study in the United States, I would like to make an appeal for the validity period for a U.S visa to be increased from 1 year to up to four years or more. I understand that this is the same amount of time given to U.S citizens studying in Uganda. I am making this appeal because the visa application fee is high (about $160) and not every student may have this amount on every visa application. Countries like India and other Asian countries avail their students with visas of up to 10 years. I am kindly requesting the Ministry to change the policy so that we may have longer visa durations, which would encourage more Americans students into this country and also more Ugandan students into the U.S and that mix of culture will make Uganda a better place. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Racheal Ahimbisibwe
