  1. Sorry for late response. You can get your Biometrics done at any VAC. I am sorry but there is not VAC in Bangalore. The list for VAC's are the below Visa Application Center Locations City Branch Address Mumbai Bandra East, Mumbai - 400051 Parinee Crescenzo, 101, 1st Floor, A Wing, G Block, Bandrakurla Complex Chennai Nungambakkam, Chennai 600034 Good shepherd, No 82, Kodambakkam High Road Hyderabad Begumpet, Secunderabad – 500003 1-8-384/385, Gowra Grand, S.P.Road Kolkata Kolkata – 700017 Jasmine Tower, 31, Shakespeare Sarani (1st Floor) New Delhi Connaught Place, New Delhi – 110001 Shivaji Stadium Metro Station, Concourse Level Baba Kharak Singh Marg
  2. I never uploaded chat and/or call log on CEAC, but i did take random couple days of Video chat screenshots, call log and chat log of the months we were not together (it took like 22 pages all together). But the VO never asked for any of it. My suggestion would better have it and not need it rather than not have it and then need it. Good luck. Here is the link where you can make collages. It helped me a lot. I added like 9 screen shots and took a printout. You can save lot of pages by doing this. https://www.photocollage.com/
  3. 1) You will receive your SSN within few weeks after landing in the USA 2) For medical, go to CCM Hyderabad website, there you fill a form and submit it. You will receive an email from the doctor about the appointment in 2 to 3 business days. I guess your appointment will be scheduled like 2 to 3 weeks before the interview. 3) I guess you can try. There is no harm in asking for earlier date. Good Luck
  4. Thank you..!! 1) It took 1 week for NVC to respond saying that they are sending it to the embassy and it is upto them to accept or not, then it took another 1 week for embassy to approve. I guess over all from sending email for expedite to getting approval email, it took 17 days. 2) I believe it is the same process. On the scheduling page left side top, there is an option to reschedule the appointment. If selected, it will first redirect to the VAC appointment dates page. After selecting the VAC date, it will then take to the interview appointment dates page. Check it there is an available date which you desire. Good Luck
  5. Hello, Just wanted to give an update on my case. I got approved this week in mumbai embassy. CC June 21st. Petitioner my wife (USC). I had my case expedited. Reason pregnancy. We sent Doctor's Medical Certificate to NVC in July end as it was the beginning of her 9th month. I guess that is the reason the expedite got approved. Then in august i got the chance to book my interview and the only available slot was September 30. I booked it and continuously kept monitoring if any other prior slots opened up. Fortunately, a slot for this week opened and i rescheduled. So i had my interview and got approved. Unfortunately, i could not be there earlier for the birth of my Daughter. Anyways the interview was easy. The CO was the very nice lady. Asked all the generic questions: who is calling you? what is the name of your spouse? Love marriage or arrange? who arrange the marriage? when you do first meet her? what is your spouse location in usa? who is the joint sponsor? where does he/shes lives in usa? What is your relationship with the joint sponsor? Where will you be staying in usa? What are plans after going there? What kind of job will you be looking for? Where was the wedding? How many people attended the wedding? Do you have pictures? I brought two slim albums of 40 photos each. She barely looked in there How did your families know each other? What did they see in you to select you as their daughter's husband? How long your families known each other? Asked me what was the reason for expedite? I told her pregnancy, so she asked when is the baby due? I told her the baby is born already. Do you have your child's birth certificate with you? I said no, we applied and we are waiting. I also took video call screen shots of my daughter. I color printed out those screenshots. So i asked her if she wanted to see my daughter pictures and showed her. She was like this is good. Then she asked questions about my time in usa. what i did over there, how long was i there for, was i ever out of status and so on. Here are the tips before the interview: Make sure you have the original civil documents and their photocopy, medical envelope and passport ready. Dress formally Be there before time and please smile. Hope this helps
  6. Alright, here are few answers to your questions. FYI: This is my personal experience In medical, they do Blood tests, Urine Tests, Physical test and, Chest Xray. If you have vaccination records, take it with you and if not then they will give you vaccines which are needed. For biometrics, you must have received an email to create an account on ustraveldocs.com. Create an account on there and select date for the biometrics. My suggestion: get your biometrics done like 4 to 5 days before your interview For staying in Mumbai, my suggestion is, atleast be there a day before like in the morning or afternoon, so that you can settle down and be ready for the interview next day in the morning around 7 or 7 30. Also try to stay near the embassy area, so that the transportation time will be less. Interview Questions: Mine was the spouse visa, i don't the questions will be the same, but there are few generic questions who is calling you? what is the name? what is the location in usa? who is the sponsor? where does he/shes lives? What is your relationship with the sponsor? Where will you be staying in usa? What are plans after going there? These are the few i could think of right now. Hope these help.
  7. Did you call NVC to check if there are any updates to your case? That's horrible...No 221g or anything?
  8. Cant even say have patience, cos honestly i am losing mine...this is beyond horrible
  9. If i am not wrong, few people here completed 90 days after DQ and who are waiting for interviews at Mumbai embassy...any updates??
  10. God knows what is going on with these people. Btw did anyone happen to speak to someone from the mumbai embassy? Do these people have any different answer?
  11. Just got off the phone from calling NVC, hoping if they will provide some sort of answer to my queries but I got the same generic answer from NVC. We do not know the timeframe for Mumbai embassy interview schedule.
