US intends to launch consulates in Indian cities Bengaluru and Ahmedabad

Thursday, June 22, 2023


A senior White House official claimed on Thursday that The US will open two new consulates in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad while India will establish a mission in Seattle to boost people–to–people relationships.

The official said the US issued a record 125,000 visas to Indian students last year. Also as reported by one of the senior administration officials is that Indian students are set to become the largest foreign student community in the United States with a 20 percent increase last year alone.

The US Department of State is going to launch a pilot to adjudicate domestic renewals of certain petition–based temporary work visas later this year, including for Indian nationals with the intent to implement this for an expanded pool.

The US embassy in New Delhi is one of the largest US diplomatic missions in the world. The embassy coordinates the activities of four consulates – in Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, and Hyderabad – ensuring that the US – India relationship is strong throughout the country.
