May 5, 2021
Following the Presidential Proclamation suspending most nonimmigrant travel from India, which is now in effect, the U.S. Embassy & Consulates in India announced that “all routine visa and VAC appointments, both in-person and interview waiver, at U.S. Embassy New Delhi and the consulates in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai are cancelled until further notice. Emergency services for U.S. citizens will continue.”

This announcement will further complicate and delay the process of applying for and traveling under H-1B, L-1 and other nonimmigrant visa stamps, including for dependent family members. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you apprised of developments on our website.
