US: No change in Visa policy for Indian Students!

Posted Fri, 27 Apr 2012 10:28:52 -0000

USA clarifies that there has been no change in visa issuance process towards Indian students.

Further to the US visit of education ministers of four Indian states - Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jammu & Kashmir last week, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland clarifies Indian students will continue to get visas as before and there has been no change implemented in this regard.

She said, "I don't think we've changed our policy with regard to the way we interview applicants."

"I think what we are doing is making sure that the sponsoring organisations truly are what they say they are in the United States; that if they say that they are bringing students over to educate them, that they intend to educate them, not put them to work, et cetera," she further clarified.

She also pointed upon USA's support on building community colleges in India. She said, "Well, obviously, we support this initiative. We have been working with the Indian side to flesh out the initiative that was agreed between the President and the prime minister through our Education Bureau here. And obviously, we are responsible for the visa issuance for the various folks studying in the United States."
