It has been brought to our attention that the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in India have recently experienced a significant increase in visa appointment and processing wait times to schedule a nonimmigrant visa interview. The earliest appointment for a nonimmigrant visa interview, other than a visitor or student visa, is currently exceeding 75 days in India. Nonimmigrant visa applicants are encouraged to review appointment dates at least three months in advance of the intended date of travel. It is also anticipated that nonimmigrant visa wait times may increase over the upcoming summer months.

If for any reason you are scheduled to travel to India, require a visa to come back, and cannot obtain an nonimmigrant visa appointment during your trip, please contact Kathy Grzegorek at kathy@sggimmigration to discuss possible alternative locations where you may apply for a U.S. visa.
