The number of Indian students studying in America is increasing day by day. In this context, obtaining a visa is now becoming a burden. And the superpower is also giving student visas to all countries according to the quota. This does not suit a large country like India. In this context, America has given good news to Indian students. A US visa will be available one year prior to the start of the course.

The US decision is a relief to those who are already waiting for student visas. The US Bureau of Consular Affairs has released a statement to this effect. It has been said that visas given to students in F and M categories are being given flexibility to be issued 365 days in advance. As part of the I20 programme, it has been revealed that F and M student visas will be issued 365 days in advance. But even if the visa is received a year before, they are not allowed to go to America before the course starts. Students admitted to universities can schedule visa interviews three months (120 days) in advance, the US said.
