Indian students applying for an F-1 student visa to the US for the first time can rejoice as there could be more interview slots reserved for fresh applicants to pursue their education in the Land of the Free, said a report.

In a 30-minute Facebook live chat on April 18, 2022, while addressing several non-immigrant visa changes, Minister Counselor for Consular Affairs at the US embassy Donald L Heflin made the important announcement that first-time applicants for a student visa to the US will be prioritised.

Students who were previously refused a visa, or were turned down in Spring this year and were planning to apply again in Summer — are unlikely to get interview slots again this year, reported the Times of India (TOI).

Heflin said students applying for the first time have the best chance of getting their student visa to study in the US approved during the first interview.

“I am going to use the cricket term. A lot of you guys are worried about getting bowled out before you even step on the crease. But a vast majority of students hit a six in the first interview which is your best chance of getting your visa. Don’t worry about whether you get a second chance or not,” Heflin was quoted saying.
