Reader feedback: Restrictions are devastating

Re: Slovak - US visa group set up, News Briefs, October 11-17, Vol 10, No 39

Slovaks should definitely not have visa restrictions to the US. In my case, the Canadian government refused a visitor's visa to my wife's 27-year-old son and we were devastated. Might explain why I now live and work in Manchester, England. Slovakia is part of the EU and should be treated as such, no better, no less.
