USA has been deplaning, deporting and sending back students and business visitors who were issued valid visas with proper papers. The External Affairs Ministry has strongly emphasized to US authorities to honour the visas issued Indian Consulates to travel for education and business. It seemed like this was only concerning two universities in Silicon Valley, California, but now the deportations have grown to include many other cases. Students are being asked to give proof of their study plans, housing, financial support, health care arrangements and other things. Going by experience, students can only have some of the documentation before starting, while others would be sorted out on reaching the destination.
