Yes my spouse has in 2nd week of October. There should be no courier fees but Site does not work to register a address for Immigrant Visa Interview. As far as documents go you should take to the embassy but in my case my wife submit all the documents to VFS in Chandigarh on 24th and they took it. Interview letter said she had to bring her medical to Visa Interview. Called New Delhi Embassy they said it was okay but help line said no. Nobody had no info.

where is your appointment? If you have appointment in mumbai then you would have a great help for MuMBAI VJ members but if you have Interview in Delhi then oh well no luck nobody is really active in VJ. Good luck

Hi Daxesh,

My husband had his Mumbai Interview yesterday and was a part of this new VFS change. He got approved, you can read the whole history in our review. Essentials are: No fees as Passport/Visa are couried free of charge as long as address is in the Consulates Locale. Otherwise, will be shipped to a site close to your home address and which you select when you register on the Travel Documents page.

Also, just take all your documents, originals, medical report and supporting evidence with you on the day of the Interview. They take them on the same day now. It was fairly easy as per my husband, just a pain to lug all that on the day of.

Good Luck!!!
