In response to the increasing demand from Indian students eager to pursue higher education in the USA, the US Consulate in Hyderabad has extended the student visa application period by two weeks, now available until August 2024. This extension is especially significant for the students from the Telugu states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where the USA remains the top choice for higher education.

The decision is a win for students who are aiming to start their higher study in US for the intake periods of Fall 2024 and Spring 2025. It ensures that those with later interview dates can still secure their visas on time. This move addresses a previous issue where 10,000 F1 visa slots, released just after midnight of May 19th were snapped up within minutes, leaving many students in a lurch. But now, additional appointment slots for June, July, and August will be made available for Indian aspirants.

Also, the statistics tell an impressive story. In 2022, over 210,000 Indian students enrolled in US universities, with a remarkable 40% hailing from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh only. The demand from these states is so high that the City of Pearls – Hyderabad has the longest visa wait time at 299 days. This far exceeds wait times in other major cities like Chennai (14 days), Delhi (51 days), Kolkata (19 days), and Mumbai (144 days).

By extending the application period, the US Consulate also aims to ease the pressure and reduce wait times, making the process smoother and more accessible. This extension is a positive step towards ensuring that every aspiring student has the opportunity to pursue their dreams in the USA.

In light of this positive development, aspiring students from not just Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, but all of the 29 states and 8 union territories will now have a better chance to secure their student visa USA. This extension by the US Consulate not only alleviates the pressure of tight timelines but also opens up gates for aspirants to live their American Dream!
