IIT-JEE is planning to go global with the collaboration of the Indian government to open the door of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced 2022 exams for foreign students in around 25 countries in 2022. The collaboration aims to help Indian higher education institutions to establish cooperation with foreign educational institutions and to motivate foreign universities to send their students to Indian institutions. Candidates who are not citizens of India (by birth or naturalized) and/or are Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) will be treated as foreign nationals. Foreign students will be able to get admission to the Indian Institute of Technology, the Indian Institute of Information Technology, the School of Planning and Architecture, and other Technical Institutions of the central government.
