if the number don’t  rise in India. It will be back to normal gradually. As of now they will allow international flight post 15th April. 
 

Best to just stay home and let this pass. 
 

because if you travel to India. They will advise you to go into self quarantine for 14 days. And do you really want to risk your family by travelling during this pandemic?

This is the exact reason why i tell people to travel soonest and not to push it until one is close to the deadline. That's water under the bridge now...You will have to travel at the earliest opportunity after April 15th. Not to scare you or anything, but you do not want to be at the mercy of the US Consulate after the deadline. And with the default settings of this administration of limiting immigrants, you'd better work fast and beg for mercy later while in the US.

If she is unable to travel, she can contact the Immigrant Visa Unit in Mumbai to request the visa be re-issued.  No guarantees, and she'll need a new medical.

I don't think you understand, you better book a flight for her to come to the US ASAP.  If you Gamble and lose you will be at the mercy of US Immigration and they have little mercy so she may be delayed much longer than you like.  Better to lose money on your ticket than to have to reapply for a new visa.

I am in the exact same boat. Not sure what the options are at the moment.

The law allows consulates (at their discretion) to re-issue visas which have expired due to the inability of a holder to travel.  It would require a new medical, possible extra fees, and possibly more documents.......contact the appropriate consulate.

Even once the airlines are allowed to fly again it will take the better part of a month or more to restart.  With all these planes already put into short term storage programs,  it will take hours and hours of maintenance per aircraft and an incredible amount of manpower (read weeks)  to get them operationally ready.  Also, pilots are required to perform a minimum number of takeoffs and landings, if they don't, then they go back into the simulator.  It is a monumental task.  It was a monumental task after 9/11, unfortunately this one is not just the USA, but the entire world.  I doubt we will see much international flying until the end of summer (best case) but it could easily be 12 to 18 months


YMMV

What you said scares me.  My fiance is on a K1 Visa and needs to get to the USA from the Philippines by August 20th.  It will cost us much more time and heartaches for her to go through the medical all over again.  I hope she can travel sometime in May or June....not later.
