At 82,000, US issues highest student visas globally to Indians this year


LOS ANGELES: Students from India have got the highest number of visas issued by the United States this fall. The US Embassy in Delhi said on Wednesday that it has issued “a record-breaking 82,000 student visas in 2022, higher than any other country.”
Patricia A Lacina, charge d’affaires of the US Embassy in India, said: “…there are more Indian students going to study in the US than from any other country in the world. This year the US mission in India has issued the highest number of student visas to date with 82,000 Indian students heading to the US to begin their academic journey. This shows the US remains the most sought after country for higher education. We celebrate the important contributions Indian students make to both our countries as they build lifelong connections with American peers to maintain and grow international partnerships.”
Earlier the UK had also said that it has issued the highest students visas globally to Indian students. India has overtaken China as the largest nationality being issued sponsored study visas in the UK.“Indian nationals were issued the largest number of UK study, work and visitor visas in the year ending June 2022,” British High Commissioner to India had said late last month.
According to the latest UK Immigration Statistics published on August 25, 2022, nearly 118,000 Indian students received a student visa in the year ending June 2022 – up 89% from previous year. India has now overtaken China as the largest nationality being issued sponsored study visas in the UK. Ellis had recently said, “India first again. I’m delighted that Indian nationals were issued the largest number of UK study, work and visitor visas in the year ending June 2022.”
Canada has similarly seen very high visa applications from Indian students. The huge rush has caused massive delays in many countries’ missions, especially Canada.
