WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — The Indian Embassy in Washington, DC is actively working with their consul generals and Indian American community organizations to assist the 200,000 Indian nationals that are students at U.S. universities left in limbo because of coronavirus-related shutdowns. Embassy officials tell Diya TV that with schools like Harvard University closing down dormitories, nonprofit organizations like Sewa International have offered assistance to help students get through this period of uncertainty.

A complete list of resources provided by the embassy for students and others impacted by coronavirus closures, including details on the closure of walk-in visa applications for the next two weeks at Indian consulates around the U.S.
