Embassy Review : Thank you so much to the US Consulate staff for being easy and helpful! Queues were long but the interview itself was short! Only 8-10 questions, and then the long awaited “you are approved”!
Rating : Very Good

Did you get any email from Mumbai Consulate to schedule interview and appointment? My case in Ready status from 21st July 2023 and I have not received any further correspondence
MandaRose on 2023-08-04 said:
No we have not! We just got ready status today August 4th. I think next we need to fill the DS-160 and pay the fees on it, then schedule the appointment!

Ok, I got the Ready status on 21st July 2023 and scheduled my interview for August. But for the medical they are asking for appointment letter from US consulate, which I dont know of.
MandaRose on 2023-08-04 said:
Do you have proof like of your interview date? The confirmation of that appointment? I think that's what they mean by 'appointment letter'!

After my case was in ready status at NVC ceac website on 21st July 2023. I scheduled my VAC appointment and consular interview on 30th July 2023 for August 2023. I did not received any other details apart from Ready status on NVC. I have the DS 160 and appointment confirmation. But not any appointment letter.

I contacted the medical place again and they declined to schedule an appointment until I can give them instruction letter from Mumbai Consulate (packet 4 instructions) which I do not have.
blank avatar Hiteshk1 on 2023-08-19 said:
From where did you get your medical done? Did you receive any packet 4 instructiona from Mumbai Consulate?
MandaRose on 2023-08-19 said:
We have scheduled our medical for this coming Tuesday, at the location in New Delhi. We have not yet gotten the P4, but the Delhi location doesn't require it. Mohali does though!
blank avatar Hiteshk1 on 2023-08-23 said:
Was the medical done on 22nd August and by when will you get the report?
MandaRose on 2023-08-23 said:
Yes! The medical was done Tuesday Aug 22nd at the New Delhi site, and they said to come pick up the results on the 29th!

Got packet 4 on 24th August 2023, now waiting for interview slot. There are no slots right now.
MandaRose on 2023-08-27 said:
I'm glad you are waiting for a slot now! Keep checking, they add them often.
blank avatar Hiteshk1 on 2023-09-22 said:
Did you get your visa already? If yes, does it mention the ds 160 number? My visa is in issued status
MandaRose on 2023-09-22 said:
Not yet! Ours just went to issued status today so we are waiting for the ready-for-pickup email (tomorrow? Monday?) once we get the visa will let you know!

*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
