The US embassy on Tuesday said thousands of Indian students have secured visa appointments for July and August since June 14. According to a senior American diplomat, the US mission in India is “actively working” to accommodate as many student visa applicants as possible in July and August, and facilitating their legitimate travel remained a top priority for it.

“Since June 14, thousands of students have secured visa appointments for July and August. Thousands of appointments remain available and we will open thousands more in coming weeks,” the American embassy said in a tweet. “We appreciate your patience as we diligently work to resolve the technical issues you have encountered,” it said.

Don Heflin, the Minister Counselor for consular affairs at the US embassy, had also said earlier that the US-bound students will not require any proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter the country. They will need a negative report of their COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to their departure.
