US Releases First Portion of Student Visa Appointments for Indian Students

By Casey May 8, 2024 2 min. read

Indian students will have an opportunity to book US student visa interviews starting in late May! The US Consulate announced the first round of appointments, with more expected in the coming weeks. This is welcome news, as the US remains a top choice for Indian students seeking international education. Despite the popularity of the US for international study, be aware that the number of student visa denials is also on the rise.

No Shortcuts, But Strategies Help: Acing Your US Student Visa Interview

While there’s no magic formula to guarantee success, preparation is key for your US visa interview. Be ready to talk in detail about why you chose your university, your future career goals, and how your degree program will add value. Your goal is to show your dedication to learning and professional ambitions.

Consular officials want to see driven, capable students who will thrive in the US. Their goal isn’t to trick you, but to figure out if your plans align with the best interests of yourself, the university, and the US.

International students seeking an F-1 student visa must invest time and effort for a successful US visa interview. There’s no fast-track way to study and build a career in the United States.

US Visa Policy Updates Will Help with Student Visa Backlogs

In November 2022, the US implemented a policy change to improve the integrity of the student visa system. Now, anyone applying for an F, M, or J visa must provide their correct passport information when they create their profile and book their appointment.

This change is intended to prevent fraud and make sure only legitimate applicants use the visa system.

Bansuri was very helpful in explaining the reason she was asking me certain questions about my upcoming appointment. She was polite, clear and persuasive – excellent qualities for someone who does her job, and really a great first impression for The visa Place. Thank you, Bansuri.

My interaction with Brenda was cordial and professional, she understood what I needed and made sure that I got all my questions answered. Dumb thing to say maybe but I felt her smile coming through the phone. Thank you Brenda!

Thank you for guiding us through this complicated process. Although the first part of our process with Visaplace we felt was slow, they turned it around. In the end we had a good experience with their attorney, she was determined to get it right and deserves to be commended.

I was very pleased with the service provided to me by VisaPlace. Felicita was professional and persistent, even contacting my employer to help fill out the Employer Portal. She went the extra mile and prepared a package of forms and documentation that let my wife and I breeze through the Canada Border Services process and be issued Canadian work permits.I feel I definitely got my money’s worth with these people.

Successfully obtained my US L1 Visa thanks to Visaplace. We had some problems with document retrieval at first but they’d been there before and guided us through. Highly recommended.
