Effective December 4, 2006, nonimmigrant visa applicants who speak fluent English can now apply for a nonimmigrant visa at the U.S. Embassy, New Delhi or the U.S. Consulates in Chennai or Mumbai. Applicants who wish to take advantage of this option should book their appointment online through VFS.

As a resident of India, you are required to select your current ‘State of Residence’ where you have been residing for the past six months or longer. Later at the time of scheduling your interview, you may see calendars offering dates at more than one post. Those who are fluent English speakers and have not been previously refused a visa, may select an interview date from any post shown. Incase you are not fluent in English or were previously denied a visa, you must select a date only from the post covering the area where you reside. Applicants who have been denied a visa can only seek to have the decision reviewed by reapplying at the post where the denial occurred.
