    Hi Sainath,
    I interviewed at the Mumbai Consulate in May (for immigrant visa). Just to give you an idea of how long, it has been over 60 days and I'm still waiting.
    I will pray that you get your visa approved soon!

    A1: It can take a few weeks. It may also take a few months.
    A2: Background check that needs to be completed by various federal agencies in the US
    A3: Yes, there is always a chance
    A4: Hopefully it will take less than 3 weeks. If not, hopefully your employer will show compassion.
    A5: Irrelevant. The need for your background check is independent of the fact that you are employed by an IVY league university hopsital.
    A6: I would advise you to inform them since there is a chance you may not be able to join them in 3 weeks time.
