Abroad Study, Student Visa Interview Slots: The US Embassy in India has invited applications for visa interviews for students dreaming of studying abroad. The first visa interview slot is for students who want to go to the US to study in August. Students who have applied for F, M and J visa categories and have I-20 can book their interview slots. Their interview will be held after August 14. The US Embassy has given this information by tweeting.
Student visa appointments are available on our website. If you have an I-20, don’t wait! Future F, M, and J appointment openings at the Embassy and Consulates will be for interviews taking place after Aug 14, so if you need to arrive at school by mid-Aug, book an appointment now!

Last month, the US embassy told students not to panic if they could not book their visa appointment in the first place; they would be given a second chance. A notice said, ‘If you do not get an appointment in this instalment, then do not panic. We will focus on the students for June, July and August and open the slots for the rest of July and the first half of August’.
Last year a record 62,000 students received visas will be issued.
Relief was given to students.
An announcement said that if your visa was denied earlier, you could wait for an open appointment in August. At that time, you will have a second chance to give an interview.
