Yangon – The Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy will open visa interview appointments for student visa applicants later this month. 

Students in Myanmar deserve the opportunity to pursue their education in the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Myanmar is committed to supporting the people’s aspirations for a brighter future through cultural and academic exchange.

Interested student visa applicants can review application requirements and other information at

Prospective students interested in exploring options for study in the U.S. can make free, virtual educational advising appointments with EducationUSA Burma advisers based in Yangon and Mandalay (students from all areas of Myanmar welcome!)

 The U.S. Embassy had suspended student visa interviews in March 2020 due to State Department guidelines at the onset of COVID-19.  The spread of COVID-19 remains a concern in Myanmar.   New State Department guidelines allow the U.S. Embassy to conduct student visa interviews while adhering to strict COVID-19 precautions.
