My husband's Interview at the Mumbai Consulate is next week.
Today I got an email from the Consulate informing me that they were closing early due to potential demonstrations and protests due to the film that is causing so much problems here.
My question is, has anyone ever had the Embassy or Consulate close on the day of their Interview and if so, how was your Interview re-scheduled?
- Did you have to request the re-scheduling of your Interview?
- Who did you contact for that?
- Was it difficult?
- Was it postponed for long?
- How soon till you could get it re-scheduled?
I'm getting a little bit worried that the Consulate may close down on the day of our Interview.
Your case is very different from others...if someone (for example "me" but thats true
unable to submit documents at VFS office and do not visit Consulate office on Interview Date because of any reasons...then the Applicant becomes "NO SHOW" applicant. Then applicant need to reschedule his/her interview...For example (again "me") got second interview date after two months...
But your case is not being rescheduling because of yours non availability...This is uncertainty and you will get same kind of email from VFS for new interview date.
However, please be calm and just wait...and please also listen news about this protest...Mumbai is very high alert area now these days, so many of us do not think that consulate office will be closed early. They have just warned but not given any notice that you do not need to come that day...You please prepare yourself from your end.
