On June 12, the US Consulate General in HCM City announced on their official Facebook page that there was no change to visa policy for Vietnamese nationals.

"Don't believe online rumours! There has been no change to US visa policy for Vietnamese nationals. The US Consulate General in HCM City looks forward to resuming in-person visa services as soon as possible and will do all we can to accommodate student visa applicants heading to the US. Please note we are processing mail-in renewal visas for students (," the US Consulate General wrote on the page.

In the past days, both parents and students were worried and confused as the rumours that the US had stopped granting visa for Vietnamese students were spread.

According to the rumours, on June 8, many overseas education counselling units in Vietnam were rejected by the Bureau of Stay. Starting from July 1, Vietnam would be among five countries that the US would refuse to consider the resident status for its citizens due to fake dossiers, thefts and run-away problems.

The Mission Vietnam's Pre-Departure Orientation for Vietnamese students going to study in the US will be held soon. Students will find useful information about visa, scholarships and campus life at the three-day programme.
