Average time to pick up passport with visa after interview in Delhi

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out what dates I will return to US from Delhi. I am a US citizen petitioner planning to fly to India to be with my wife and accompany her thru the process and the trip back to the U.S. After the visa is issued, I will have to book tickets for me and my wife to return to the U.S.

I can't find any answer on this forum. What is the average time to pick up passport with CR-1 visa at the secured Delhi location after the interview at the US embassy in Delhi?

I hope DC12345 or someone can chime in. S\he just went thru CR1 approval in New Delhi. (Based on prior posts, probably 3-4 days).

I'm curious as well.. I plan to fly from the US and join my wife the day of her interview at Delhi.. and hopefully the two of us can fly back together to the US if all goes well.
