Student Visa Day: Celebrating Educational Exchange Between India and the United States

U.S. Mission India’s fourth annual Student Visa Day, an event that celebrates higher education ties between India and the United States.  This day is also dedicated to helping qualified Indian students prepare for their education in the United States by connecting them with EducationUSA for pre-departure information.

The U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, and Consulates General in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai, today welcomed more than 4,000 Indian students to apply for visas to study in the United States.  In Mumbai, Consul General Edgard Kagan congratulated the day’s applicants as they joined the growing ranks of Indian students who choose to study in the United States.

In 2017, more than 186,000 Indian students were enrolled in U.S. institutions of higher education, more than double the number from a decade ago and a 12 percent increase from the year before.  India is the second leading place of origin for students coming to the United States, with Indians comprising over 17 percent of the total international students in the United States.

“Every year, tens of thousands of bright, ambitious students from India choose to study at U.S. higher education institutions.  In the United States, these young people will receive a world-class education and the experience of a lifetime,” said Consul General Kagan in Mumbai.  “Again and again, I see that beyond the tremendous value to each student, international educational exchange plays a central role in the U.S.-India relationship.  Student exchanges between our two countries help to strengthen the foundation upon which our strategic partnership is built.”

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates General welcomed Student Visa Day applicants with an informative and celebratory atmosphere.  Across the country, consular staff members wore shirts and hats from their own alma maters.  In Mumbai, the consulate invited guest alumni speakers to talk about their #StudyintheUS experiences, and created a “selfie” station for students to capture and share their stories.  Representatives from EducationUSA and Dosti House and recent U.S. graduates were available to give their insights and to answer questions from students about life as a student in the United States.
