No issues with study visas: US varsity

The Missouri State University has sought to dispel fears about the possible adverse impacts of the Trump administration’s new policy on granting visas to Indian students.

“We don’t anticipate any kind of problem in granting study visas to Indian students,” Steve Robinette, associate vice president for international programmes of the university told reporters here on Thursday.
“Students are getting visa. They (Trump administration) are not trying to curb any legitimate entry to the US,” he said

Robinette, who was here on an official tour, said he recently visited the US Embassy and discussed the issue with the officials there. “They (embassy officials) have not anticipated any problem with visas,” he said.

‘Not fully understood’
Prateek Gujaral, regional adviser to the Missouri State University, said the changes in the US visa policy have not been “fully understood.”

“Immigration policy cannot be foreseen by anyone because it is always based on work and demand policy. But what we understand is that the Trump administration is not targeting India. They are only targeting the misuse of visas. So, we would suggest that the students choose the right course,” he said.
