Can a student in New Zealand apply for a US. visa?
My boy friend is Indian and is studying in Auckland, New Zealand. He wishes to visit the States on a visit visa, but we don’t think he’s eligible to apply there (He’s not a NZ Citizen) Is this true or can he apply from where he is? I do know the wellington embassy doesn’t do visa services..so what can we do?
He can apply there, but it’s hard to say what his chances are of getting it. It’s usually a lot harder to apply for the first time outside of your home country. However, who says they don’t do visas in New Zealand? Kiwis don’t need tourist visas since they’re on Visa Waiver, but they need other types of visas like anyone else. Try the consulate in Auckland. This is from their website newzealand.usembassy.gov:
