… Reduces fees for immigrants’The US has announced an increase of the tourist and business visas while there has been a decrease in all other categories of visas.The changes, according to a US Embassy statement yesterday, are to take effect from April 13, 2012.The fees for most non-immigrant visa applications and Border Crossing Cards will increase, while all immigrant visa processing fees will decrease.Increasing from US$140 to US$160 are visa processing fees for Tourist, Business, Transit, Crew Member, Student, Exchange Visitor, and Journalist.The US said that the current fees, in some cases just do not cover the cost processing the visas.“The Department is required to recover, as far as possible, the cost of processing visas through the collection of application fees.  For a number of reasons, the current fees no longer cover the actual cost of processing non immigrant visas.The non -immigrant visa fee increase will support the addition and expansion of overseas facilities, as well as additional staffing required to meet increased visa demand.”The US Georgetown Embassy added that although most categories of non-immigrant visa processing fees will increase, the fee for E visas (treaty-traders and treaty-investors) and K visas (for fiancé (e)s of U.S. citizens) will decrease.Non immigrant Visa Processing FeesType of VisaPrevious FeeNew FeeTourist, Business, Transit, Crew Member, Student, Exchange Visitor, and Journalist visas$140$160Petition-Based visas (H, Michael Brantley Indians Jersey, L, O, P, Q, and R)$150$190Treaty Investor and Trader visas (E)$390$270Fiancé(e) visas (K)$350$240Border Crossing Cards (age 15 and older)$140$160Border Crossing Cards (under age 15)$14$15Because of a reallocation of costs associated with immigrant visas, all categories of immigrant visa processing fees will decrease, the embassy said.Immigrant Visa Processing FeesType of VisaPrevious FeeNew FeeImmediate Relative and Family Preference Applications$330$230Employment-Based Applications$720$405Other Immigrant Visa Applications$305$220Diversity Visa Program Fee$440$330Determining Returning Resident Status$380$275

– visiting French Professor France-based Guyanese, Professor and Electrical Engineer, Joseph Farley, has said that a good electricity supply is paramount if Guyana wishes to progress with businesses.The specialist, who is currently in Guyana and doing work with the University of Guyana Berbice and Turkeyen Campuses, Jordan Zimmermann Tigers Jersey, stated that no one in the business world would tolerate employing large numbers of people and have them “sit idle for four hours” during a blackout.Prof Joseph FarleyOver the past couple of weeks, there has been an upsurge in blackouts. Berbice is being hit hard by rolling blackouts on a daily basis. Already, GPL has tipped 200 blackouts for the year, and this certainly does not auger well for the power utility company. Berbicians are furious.Prof Farley, who is staying in Rose Hall Town, said that one day he had a blackout in the town for more than four hours. “When you have a hundred employees or more sitting around, waiting for current to come on, this is a loss of productivity. So big businesses, if they were thinking of coming into South America, would look at your resources and infrastructure, and when they find out that the power is very unreliable, their answer will be  ‘no!— I am not going to be going there’.Prof Farley said that there can be several solutions to improve the electricity situation in Guyana. He added that the country needs to ensure that there are the right people doing the jobs and that appointments are based on merits.“The manager that is responsible should be given some objectives”, he stated. The objectives, he said, need to be reviewed regularly.When workers do a good job, he noted that they need to be congratulated. “People are not only interested in the financial side— that is important— they are also interested in the working environment and job satisfaction.”Maintenance is another area whereby GPL can improve so that power supply can be improved altogether. “We cannot expect the machines to be churning day and night, without them going faulty, so we have to keep a good log of what is happening and when.”Poor radio SignalsThe poor radio signals being experienced by much of the population, especially those far away from the transmission radio sites, he said, can be blamed on the electricity situation. “We’re coming back to the same electrical problem. When the electricity goes off, people buy back-up generators, and a lot of these generators are not regulated, so they emit a lot of electrical noise. Because I do not know where the transmitter is for the radio in the Corentyne area, and because the signals are weak, the noise [being emitted from the generators] is greater than the signals, so what we hear is noise”.Dr Farley said that this deserves some action.

Though heartened to hear the statement by Head of State Bharrat Jagdeo that in two months’ time a Freedom of Information Bill will be tabled in the National Assembly, leader of the Alliance For Change Raphael Trotman said that he would have expected the Bill tabled by him would have been addressed first.According to Trotman, the Bill that was tabled by him was not a piece that he “just imagined” pointing to the fact that it was based on a model that is in force in Trinidad and Tobago.He further added that the Bill has been thoroughly addressed by the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative.According to Trotman one would have considered that in an effort to save time, the government would have at least worked with the one that was tabled, questioning if they found the Bill in his name, “totally unacceptable.”“We are already drafting it (FOI)…It is something in my manifesto…We have already gone beyond many countries in terms of changes to the constitutional system, ” Jagdeo told media operatives in Trinidad.Trotman had recently told this newspaper that he was disappointed that the Government did not see it fit to support the Freedom of Information legislation in 2008 but was, nevertheless, optimistic for 2009.He had noted that his disappointment was further fuelled by the fact that the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association had held a workshop for Parliamentarians and media operatives, where Freedom of Information (FOI) was extensively discussed.He conceded that legislation such as the FOI will take time, but pointed out that there was a resounding call by Guyanese, who were now beginning to understand the importance of such a piece of legislation, as well as the calls from the international organisations.Trotman emphasized that Freedom of Information is important for good governance and transparency.The essence of the Freedom of Information Act, according to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), is the empowerment of the populace to request any piece of information (with few exceptions, Cheap Villanova Wildcats Jerseys, such as medical records) held by a public authority.
