Reduction in Visa Operations at U.S. Consulate, Mumbai, India

Reduction in Visa Operations at U.S. Consulate, Mumbai, India
March 7, 2011

The U.S is constructing a new Consulate for Mumbai. The new multi-million dollar Mumbai Consulate facility is scheduled to open later this year. Unfortunately, the current Mumbai Consulate building's aging infrastructure has forced it to close several of the interview windows in Mumbai, limiting the number of applicants that can be accommodated at a given time. If you have already scheduled an H or L visa interview appointment at the Mumbai Consulate, you may keep that interview time. However, no new H or L visa appointments will be made at the Mumbai Consulate. New H and L interviews may be scheduled at the other U.S. Consulates in India or the Embassy in New Delhi. Appointments will be scheduled via VFS at https://www.vfs-usa.co.in/USIndia/Index.html. Appointment times can be found on the VFS website.
