The United States State Department has introduced new guiding for Visa applications, particularly nations that had been placed on terrorist watchlist.

The new rules makes social media usernames mandatory for visa request into the North American Country.

According to BBC, the new regulations also require that people also submit five years’ worth of email addresses and phone numbers.

The measure is part of the State department’s plan to ensure national security in the Country.
