New Delhi, June 10

Almost six weeks after the US restricted travel from India, it has decided to start taking appointments for students seeking visas from June 14.

These appointments will be for the period of July and August, the US Embassy in India posted on its website.

“The US we will open limited July and August student visa appointments across India.  Students may visit our website, https://ustraveldocs.com/in, to view availability and schedule an appointment,” the statement said. 

Student visas was a top priority for the US, the embassy said.

Students beginning a new education programme with a programme start date on or after August 1 may travel to the United States up to 30 days prior to the programme start date.

Existing students may also resume their programmes on or after August 1, and travel 30 days before their programme resumption date. 

On April 30, the US suspended most non-immigrant travel from India. Some 2-lakh students from India study in the US.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi while replying to quarries on Indian students facing problems said the government was aware of the challenges faced by students who have not been able to join or return to courses in foreign countries.

The MEA has been taking up the issue with all countries concerned. Details are on MEA website and social media handles.
