The waiting period for issuance of American visas is expected to see a significant fall by summer of 2023 and the number of visa applications is projected to reach around 1.2 million, a senior official of the US embassy said. “India is number one priority for Washington (for issuance of visas). Our aim is to bring the situation to the pre-Covid level by the middle of next year,” the official said.
