VAC/OFC Appointment Mumbai

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have my VAC/OFC appointment on Oct 26th in Mumbai and I was wondering if anyone who has been there could share their experience? I'm looking to know if there are places near the VAC to keep your mobile phones as they are not allowed inside? Also, what happens in cases where you're 10-15 mins late to the appointment?


Thank you all in advance :)

I left my stuff at the hotel I was staying at. Not sure about being late. Although it isn't as formal as the visa interview itself so I think they'll cut you some slacka nd should let you get the biometrics done anyway.


Have you done your medical already? Can you help me out with the following:


I was just given an IR1 visa interview date of December 14, 2018 at Mumbai. I am planning to get my medical done at Apollo hospital APHC at Chennai. Their website lists the following "required" documents to be brought to the medical appointment:


  • The original valid passport
  • 1 Passport biodata page photo copy
  • The original valid interview letter with case number in it
  • 1 Photocopy of the interview letter.
  • 6 US size photographs


I submitted all my documents online to NVC and received an interview date via email. I am not sure what an "original valid interview letter" means. Is it just the print out of the email I received with the interview date in it? Am I supposed to receive an interview letter in the mail?

I changed my interview country from Canada to India, so I am not sure what address will they send me a physical interview letter at. I am concerned that I a may not even get a physical interview letter because of the embassy switch. Will I be able to get the medical done with just the email letter?
