The US Anticipates Record Number of Student Visas in Fiscal 2023



Hey there! Exciting news on the horizon! 🌟


According to the U.S. State Department and ApplyBoard, the United States is all geared up to issue the most student visas in a year since 2016. This is awesome news! They've already given out over 392,000 visas for this fiscal year. Back in 2016, they hit a total of 471,728 F1 visas – pretty impressive!


Now, let's compare notes. In fiscal 2022 (that's from October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022), they rocked it with over 411,000 international student visas, including the popular F1s. They're aiming to top that this year, but they'll need to grant more than 40,000 international visas before September.


The U.S. is all about making it easy for foreign students and academic exchange visitors to study at their language schools, universities, and colleges. They've got your back, making sure you have the chance to pursue your dreams like a pro!


Did you know that last September, the Institute of International Education reported some fantastic news? International enrollment had bounced back from the pandemic lows, and U.S. colleges saw a surge in applications for admission.

According to ApplyBoard, six Asian countries rocked it with the largest percentage increases in student visas issued from fiscal 2021 to fiscal 2022. Uzbekistan took the crown for the first time, while Nepal, Bangladesh, and Vietnam kept showing impressive growth.


And how about students from Africa? Give it up for Nigeria and Ghana! 🎉 They scored their highest number of student visas in 2022 – totally slaying it! In fiscal 2022, over 30,700 visas were issued to students from Africa. That's a significant increase compared to previous years.


Now, here's the power duo: China and India! 🇨🇳🇮🇳 They make up more than half of all international students in the U.S., with China taking the top spot with 290,086 students and India closely following with about 200,000 students.


India, you deserve a special mention! 🙌 You broke records last year with over 125,000 new visas issued in just one year! Way to go!

The approval rate for nonimmigrant student visa applicants hit a 10-year high in fiscal 2022. More students are getting the green light to study in the U.S. – that's some great news!


So, all you incredible students out there, get ready for an amazing adventure in the land of opportunities! The U.S. is cheering you on, and we can't wait to see you shine brightly! Go chase those academic dreams and make us proud! You've got this! 💪✨
