Good news for students visiting America for study
Student visas continue to be a high priority for the US Mission in India. It is good news for students who want to study abroad. The United States embassy has announced that it would begin processing visa applications for Indian students on Monday, June 14, 2021. The goal is to make student travel easier in preparation for the fall semester of 2021.
In India, the US embassy will start processing student visas for people who need to enroll in institutions this year, beginning (July and August). However, students who start a new program on or after August 1 may travel to the United States for up to 30 days before the program begins. Students are advised not to request a national interest exemption in this situation.
Due to the deadly second corona pandemic, the United States halted most nonimmigrant travel from India on April 30, 2021. Students should remember that a negative COVID-19 test is necessary for travel within 72 hours of departure, the new notification stated.
