Viral Video of Punjabi Students in Canada

Travelling over 100-km to reach colleges and then going for tiring part-time jobs after spending five to six hours in colleges, students from Punjab are doing every bit to ensure a bright future.

While India has seen an overall increase of 22 per cent in the visa applications during the last two years, Punjab is far ahead of any other state with a 66 per cent growth in the number of visa applicants.

Migration experts say there is a ‘craze’ among Punjabi youth to go overseas, especially on student visas.

Over 5.28 million Indians applied for visas last year – a 14 per cent increase over 2017, according to VFS Global that manages visa and passport-related administrative 147 countries, including India.

Vinay Malhotra, Regional Group Chief Operating Officer of VFS Global said the company processed visa application for over 52.8 lakh Indians in the last year alone.
