The US diplomatic mission in India recently conducted its annual student visa day nationwide, interviewing nearly 3,500 Indian student visa applicants across Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai, a press release stated earlier this month

Speaking on the occasion, Garcetti said, "More Indians come to the United States as students than from any other country in the world. One out of every five student visas was issued right here in India in 2022 which is, by the way, more than the proportion of Indian population in the world. Indians have not only pursued education in the US but for decades have shown excellence. We are on track to process the highest number of visa applications for students in our history."

The ambassador said that they will be making more visa appointments available for students this year than ever.

"In the coming weeks, we will be releasing tens of thousands of student visa appointments for July and August," he added.

A record-breaking 125,000 US student visas were issued to Indians last year, surpassing any other nationality.
