The mission of the consular section is to facilitate travel between the United States and India. We educate foreign nationals about visiting and working in the U.S. and issue thousands of immigrant and non-immigrant visas every week. When U.S. citizens travel abroad, the consular section is their lifeline to U.S. Government services ranging from emergencies to voter registration.
