“Student visas remain a top priority for the US mission to India and we are making every attempt to facilitate student travel in time for the fall semester. As such, on June 14, 2021, we will open limited July and August student visa appointments at posts across India. Indian students applying for F1, J1, M1 and their dependent visas should login to our website and start booking their interview slots. They will be allowed to travel to the US up to 30 days before the start of their courses,” he said in a Facebook live session.
The US had on April 30, 2021, suspended most nonimmigrant travel from India due to the devastating second Covid here.
