With the recent travel ban and advisories issued by the Indian and U.S. Governments due to the Coronavirus situation, and in light of the U. S. Embassy cancelling all current and future visa appointments in India for an indefinite period of time, BHAVAN awardees are advised to NOT seek the DS2019 documentation from their U.S. Host as yet. For those BHAVAN awardees who have received DS 2019 form/valid visa, please note that no outward travel will be approved until further notice. As soon as the situation improves, we will get in touch with you with the next steps. Until then, please practice social distancing and stay safe and healthy.
We understand that BHAVAN Awardees currently in the U.S. may face some uncertainty and travel restrictions in returning to India. However, for those who wish to return to India now, IUSSTF will make arrangements to facilitate the same.
