US may take a stringent view in issuing visas to Chinese students, say students 

OPT/CPT Blast Resume to 1000+ employers

Corona epidemic in China may ease visa issuance for Indian students this year as the US campuses are likely to give more offer letters to Indian students and the consulates a bit liberal while stamping the all important visa on the passport.

Education consultants and students who have applied for US universities are hopeful that US may take a stringent view in issuing visas to Chinese students fearing the epidemic in China. So this may force US campuses to look for more Indian students and bring pressure for liberal visa stamping.

Moreover, the economy of Chinese families is likely to be severely hit due to the life-taking virus and they might postpone their US education aspirations for next year, feels Narsi Gayam of Promac, who guides students for US education.

It is a well-known fact that foreign students are the key for the economy of all US varsities, and to some extent their very survival. And Chinese and Indian students together account for more than 50% of that intake.

The Open Doors report of 2019 revealed that China remained the largest source of international students for the 10th consecutive year with 3,69,548 students on US campuses and on optional practical training (OPT) programmes. India was at second place with 2,02,014 students as per the report.
