Can Indians apply for a US visa from outside India? 

Updated on: Jul 8, 2024

Yes, Indians can apply for a US visa from outside India. The United States has a global network of embassies and consulates and many of these facilities accept visa applications from individuals who are not citizens or residents of the country where the embassy or consulate is located.

Indian citizens who are residing or travelling in another country can typically apply for a US visa at the nearest US embassy or consulate. They should visit the official website of the US embassy or consulate in the country they are currently in to find information on visa application procedures, required documents and appointment scheduling.

However, it's important to note that the specific procedures and requirements for US visa applications may vary slightly from one US embassy or consulate to another, so it's advisable for Indian applicants to check the official website of the embassy or consulate where they plan to apply for the most up-to-date information.
