Thanks. It really helps. I assume your from Hyderabad. The Chennai Consulate has jurisdiction over Andhra Pradesh. So the interview should be there. What are the first three letters of your NVC case number? They should be MDR if I am right.

So you need to look at your case number.

For the medical, please check this page:

http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/documentation.html#medical

It appears Chennai is the only place for you to get a medical done. I hope that I am wrong but that's what the website appears to indicate.

Honda, yes so because your case starts with MDR, Chennai is your consulate where you mother must appear for the interview. It also seems that the medical can only be done with Consulate approved doctors who are only based in Chennai.

I checked the link below, which lists the doctor/medical facilities that are approved by the Consulate. I do not think there are any physicians in Hyderabad who are approved for doing Consulate-related medicals. I find it ridiculous that they don't have anybody in Hyderabad to do medicals but I guess it's true.

I know that there is a US Consulate that has just started in Hyderabad.

http://hyderabad.usconsulate.gov/

Your mother will be sent the interview information and in that packet they will state where she has to do the medical - if some things are now done in Hyd, it will say that on the info packet; otherwise, she has to go to Chennai, can't get around that. My husband went on a train Hyd to Chennai, did the medical and returned within 24 hours. Another person we know on VJ went by flight Hyd to Chennai to get the medical done. If your mom is able to make the long long journey to USA, she has to accept going to Chennai once (for medical and interview) or twice (like most people do, going for the medical and several weeks later, going again for the interview). GOod luck to her. :thumbs:

thank you for info.

the web site ( http://hyderabad.usconsulate.gov/"]http://hyderabad.usconsulate.gov) says that:

The U.S. Consulate – Hyderabad is scheduled to open by the end of 2008. All consulate service are currently handled by the U.S. Consulate – Chennai.

does it mean that they can open any time?

Think about it - what is the Indian translation of "end of 2008"? Maybe it means the end of 2018! :lol: Seriously though, they have been planning that Hyd Consulate for years already. Who knows when it will really happen. :wacko:

LOL

Good point ELW...Honda...best thing is to hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. Either way...you need to be ready for what's going to happen regardless of whether the Hyderabad consulate is open or not. This is why we're all here for one another.

does it mean that they can open any time?
