Dr S Jaishankar had visited New Zealand to discuss the visa processing issue with his counterpart in the country.
Jaishankar brought up the difficulties Indian students faced with the student visa application process.
After the talks, the NZ government had added new rules that were aimed to recover the damage caused.
Under these changes, students were permitted full-time work during the Christmas and New Year holiday season and part-time for up to 20 hours per week on all other planned holidays.
S. Jaishankar also discussed the delay in US visas with the US High Commission on September 27.
