Extending I-129F Approval (Sputum Required) - Contact Info for New Delhi Embassy

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. My fiance had his medical this week and unfortunately, he has to go through sputum testing which will take 8 weeks for the results to come back. Our I-129F petition approval has an expiration date of November 24th so we will definitely pass that date. The medical office told him they would contact the embassy about his appointment, but will they automatically extend the petition approval? I really don't want to take any chances so I was going to have him contact the embassy directly to request an extension. Can someone help me out with how to contact the New Delhi embassy? Do we contact them through US Travel Docs (support-india@ustraveldocs.com). Or do they have a direct email address for the embassy? 


Also, if anyone has experience with going through the sputum testing in New Delhi please share how it went - did they automatically re-schedule your embassy interview or did you have to re-schedule after you received the results and were cleared?


The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

- The Dalai Lama
