HI Shreyans,

Thanks for your wishes!

I wish you the best on June 6th. I'm happy that you were able to successfully get an interview date. I will pray that you get your visa just as quickly.

As for some tips, my husband said that the interview was very simple & the consular officer was very professional, polite, and nice. My advice would be to read up on the embassy reviews where fellow VJers have posted their experiences on the interview date. That is what helped us prepare & get an accurate idea. I would recommend being very prepared with proof of relationship. There were no out of the ordinary demands or occurences. If you have what they've requested on their Packet3/4 lists, you will be all set. Make sure you take some phone logs, emails, and pics with you if you haven't submitted them to the VFS office already. That is what they asked my hubby for.....But they looked at nothing else we submitted. Not even the Affidavit of Support. My hubby had already submitted emails through the Ahmedabaad VFS Office, so they only asked for phone logs & pics. Even the pics, they simply glanced over.

By husband didn't even have to request to pick up passport the same day. They simply gave him a receipt to show for at 5:30pm at the VFS office to pick up Visa the same day.

I feel like we were worried and stressed for no reason at all. Mumbai's experience was surely excellent. I will post my complete experience soon.

Once again, Let me know if you have additional questions/concerns. I will be glad to help! :dance::dance:

Good Luck & God Bless Shreyans!

Thank you PGM!! I am glad that things went so smoothly for your husband, and he gave the consulate people such good review. I'd already looked at lot of the consulate reviews, and actually that is what made me a little apprehensive. Many people got 221g for whatever reasons, and that would throw off all our plans should it happen to us. That's why we are trying to be as prepared as I can. We have collected everything on packet 3/4 list as well as all documents mentioned in postings here, so we are covered there. Hopefully, my wife's interview would also be a breeze like your husband.

Thanks again for providing detailed information!!!!
