Hyderabad Passport Pickup after Mumbai Interview - 1x month

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I am booking interview date for K-1 Visa in Mumbai consulate and for document pickup I chose hometown Hyderabad. When I was looking to see how long it would take for the passport to be ready for pickup in Hyderabad Consulate (sent consulate to consulate via Blue Dart), I came across this ustraveldocs page stating pickup is by appointment and only 3rd Wednesday of the month !!!!

http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-loc-passportcollection.asp#collectiondocs

Hyderabad Third Wednesday of the month with confirmed appointment for passport collection. To arrange an appointment, email HydCEA@state.gov with the subject line, “Passport Collection at U.S. Consulate General, Hyderabad” Please include your DS-160 barcode number and your passport number in the email for reference. 1400 hours to 1600 hours

Am I misinterpreting this???

If I have my interview next week, i have to wait 1 month to schedule a passport pickup?

Please answer quickly as I need to schedule interview.

Thanks

Well I do not know about haydrabad passpot collection.

But if in this case you have to wait for a month... my advice would be select passpot collection center as VFS bombay..

You might have to extend your stay at Mumbai after that but at least it would not be a Month.

You can change the passport pick up center through usustraveldocs.com by the evening 5 on the day of your interview if I'mI'm not wrong.

Good luck

good option.

i think i may have misinterpreted the ustraveldoc website's info.

the 1x month is if you want to go to the consulate in Hyderabad.

but the passports from Mumbai Consulate to Hyd are shipped via Blue Dart and from the Blue Dart locations you can get them anytime after arrival. I think that's what they're saying now that i have re-read it at a time that is not 2 am

Folks,

General question, after the interview, how do you know the passport is shipped from Consulate (Mumbai) to your city (Hyderabad)?

I checked

https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/applicanthome

http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-passporttrack.asp

https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx

The first two show "Passport is still with US Consulate/Embassy"

The third shows "Ready"

Interview was on Thursday (Friday was Holiday)

Today is Monday.

They said 2-3 business days to get to Hyd but I would have expected a shipment (DHL?) today.

Yes, I booked the ticket for Friday evening departure to US, thus the question/concern.

Thanks

Do you know how many days usually after interview can you pick up the visa in Mumbai?

I am also from Hyderabad. At the end did you collect from Hyderabad or Mumbai. If you collect from Hyderabad can you collect anytime from BlueDart or only once a month?

Please let me know. It will help for me to decide.
