Interviews scheduled on or after April 1, 2018 for applicants in the above categories will take place at the U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai. No visa processing in the above five cases will be processed at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi. Applicants will receive a letter from the National Visa Center that will specify the location of the visa interview and provide further details about interview preparation.

Visa applicants looking for more case-specific information on preparing for the interview and other issues may consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
