Reportedly the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has taken the process of obtaining Social Media identification (user name or handle) a step forward. It proposes to expand its coverage to various forms to be filled in by those already in the US, such as those applying for a green card or citizenship. A notice was published in the Federal Register on September 4 and public comments invited over the next 60 days.

Social Media identify to be provided to Green Card or US Citizenship applicants

As reported by TOI in its edition of June 2, E-forms D-160 and D-260, which are used at the local US consulates and filled by applicants such as tourists, students and those heading to US for work from india, were revised to include a drop-down menu. It required applicants to list their user name or handle against the social media platforms used by them during the past five years.

 


The proposal for seeking social media identifiers of those already in the US is a crucial development for the Indian diaspora, who in increasing numbers are opting for green cards and citizenship. While 60,000-odd Indians obtained green cards during the fiscal ended September 30, 2017, nearly 50,000 obtained US Citizenship during this period.
