Hi there,

I'm quite stressed that after waiting almost 2 years for my interview. I finally got my interview letter stating that my interview is scheduled in Doha (Where I worked till December 2013) and ever since have been in Delhi (My Home Country -India). My concern is that I had even notified NVC about the location change and received a confirmation for the same but eventually this is what has come to pass. Is there any way I could feel normal? Friends...plz :(

As a first step, I suggest contacting the Doha consular post through whatever contact information is listed in the interview letter. Advise them of your location change petition along with the related confirmation.

Subsequently, get in touch with NVC, or the entity that scheduled the interview. Did you get the letter at your Delhi address?

I did #VisaGrant....and they asked for a scanned copy of the appointment letter as well as other relevant details..including a proof of location change (passport entry exit stamps , etc). I did that already ..they generally take 24-48 hours to respond ..let's hope for the best. Thanks

As you're new to the forum, we suggest waiting out the 24-48 hours response time lag. Don't need to stress if you've already contacted the Consulate; it's been only 2 days. I speak from experience, they're timely about responding to inquiries.

OK friends..Finally..I received an email from the Immigration Unit -US Embassy, New Delhi mentioning my File has been requested to be sent from Doha to Delhi..My interview was originally scheduled for 3rd May 2015. While my passport would still have had 6 months and 8 days validity (to be precise) which is still more than the required 6 months to travel as its due to expire on November 10th.

They have mentioned it's gonna take upto 15 days to send my file from Doha to Delhi. But, isn't it harsh on me to suffer when I had clearly notified the NVC for the change of location? I anyways requested for ateast the same interview date (if not earlier). Considering my case was already processed for an interview..is it too much to ask..to have the interview on the date originally scheduled?

Need your feedback guys? Appreciate your input.

Cheers :)
