What you want is Direct Consular Filing (DCF), so you are on the right road because you also posted in the DCF Forum of VJ. I did a quick search of New Delhi Embassy but could not find the info you need. New Delhi is the only place that accepts DCF in India. Not many have done DCF through there, so there isn't much info on how to proceed. I would suggest you directly contact the New Delhi Embassy, better in person or through email, and ask for the details what you should do, step by step. Please report back here so that others will be benefited by the info! :thumbs:

VJ Members ManuNSam went through DCF in Delhi last year, they got the visa in March 2007. Maybe you can find some helpful info in their old posts and topics (they do not regularly check into VJ anymore, but you can try sending a PM too).

ManuNSam

Good luck!
