The U.S. Embassy and consulates in China are scheduled to resume visa appointments for students, starting May 4, after Washington lifted travel restrictions on Monday for students from China and several other countries.

More than 1,000 visa officers will meet students in person to process their applications, William Bistransky, acting consul general at the U.S. Embassy in China, said Friday at a news conference.
