Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to visit the United States at the end of September, however, there is no official confirmation as of now. According to some media reports, preparations for the prime minister’s visit to the US are underway. A source with knowledge of PM Modi’s visit said the schedule is yet to be implemented. According to initial plans, it is believed that PM Modi may visit the US on September 23-24.

PM Modi will attend the high-level annual session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York after his visit to Washington. PM Modi is likely to address this high-level annual session on September 25. According to the first provisional list of speakers for the general discussion at the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Narendra Modi will deliver a speech at a high-level session on the morning of 25 September. He is the first leader listed for that day. The 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly will begin on 14 September. Maldivian Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid will chair the year-long session. India is a temporary member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and recently India’s one-month chairmanship has ended. Afghanistan, which has plunged into crisis following the Taliban takeover, will be the key topic at the UNGA this time. It is learnt that UNGA will be in a hybrid format this year. There is no official confirmation of the visit so far, however, if it materialises, it will be PM Modi’s first physical overseas visit and a first in-person meeting with US president Joe Biden. PM Modi and Biden have met virtually at various multilateral meetings like the Quad and G7 meetings. PM Modi last visited the US in 2019, during which, he and then President Donald Trump addressed a huge diaspora event in Houston.
