India might soon surpass China in number of US visa issued by 2023
New Delhi: A senior US Embassy official said India is expected to surpass neighbour China in getting the number of US visas by 2023 and will be ranked two in the issuance of visas after Mexico.
"We expect that India will surpass China in getting the number of US visas by next year’s summer. After Mexico, India is expected to rank number 2 in the issuance of US Visas,” a Senior US Embassy official in New Delhi told ANI.
He even announced that they are opening slots in mid-November.
“For various kinds of visas, we would not have much wait time. Each separate category has some wait time,” a senior US Embassy official added.
The U.S has opened up 100,000 slots for applicants of H and L worker visas. This has already happened which will cut down the wait times.
“India is a number one priority for Washington right now. We have big categories in students, high-tech workers, tourists, and business,” the official told ANI.
