Hi All,

 

I have an interview appointment on Sep 29 at the Mumbai Consulate. I am done with all other formalities - biometrics, medical etc. How do I now select for a passport pickup option from the consulate?

 

Please help!

Once we got approved, we were told to wait 4-5 days, but the next day his visa was ready! I tracked his visa status online at ustraveldocs.com to confirm it and he also got a text that his visa was issued. He then called the number he was given and they told him to come in to pick it up -- this was in New Delhi.

Best of luck by the way ;) 

 

The VO will tell you what to expect (passport pickup etc.) once you hear the magic words "you are approved!"
