We stayed in a hotel called La Hotel Metro (Average hotel but its just 5 mins away from consulate)

We reached at 6:45 AM. Security allowed me at 7:00 AM. Accompanied persons has to wait outside on the street. After entering there is a usual security check like at airport. They chared 50 Rs for phone locker facility. Lockers are limited so I would suggest not to take it inside the cosulate.

I was asked to take a seat in the waiting area. They asked if we need a translator. I chose to have a 'Telugu' translator. Hindi, Punjabi, Telugu, Tamil , Malayalam translators are available on the day of interview.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
