Tourism Visas

The Business Council has begun a grassroots push for more attention to one of the largest job creators in New York and the United States, the Tourism Industry. By sending letters to New York's US Senators and Representatives, you are telling them that you support reforms to the tourist visa process President Obama took in his Executive Order and other federal legislation such as the “VISIT-USA” act and that you need them to support similar initiatives that will help grow our Travel and Tourism Industry and our economy.

We know the Travel & Tourism Industry creates jobs, we know tourists have a direct benefit on our local communities and now its time we make sure our Senators and Representatives know how much the Industry means to all of us.
