    My parents are from M.P. The consulate for M.P. is Mumbai but they want to go to Delhi consulate. Is that ok?
    Is there anyone else who went to Delhi consulate while their original consulate was different?

    If their state falls under Mumbai, they will have to go to Mumbai.
    I don't think they have a choice.

    Actually my parents live in Gwalior, but they went to Delhi. However, they had a previously issued Visa from Delhi (in 1999).

    I think they got the VISA as the consuler took both the DDs. However, my sister's application got rejected for 214 b (?).

    She too had a previous visa from delhi. We plan to reapply at Delhi, but any suggestions will help

    Visitor's visa from Bombay Consulate

    Hello Friends,

    My mother aged 60+ years applied for a visitor's visa by mail. She has been asked to appear for an interview. She is uneducated and does not speak Hindi or Marathi. She is totally dependent on others yet, I was told that no one can accompany her inside the consulate office.

    If your parents had some experience of getting a visa in such a situation, can you please share some of that information ?
    What are the typical questions asked in the interview ? Do they have interpretors ? How long does she have to wait inside the consulate office? Are there people to help her inside the consulate office ?

    Thanks for your help.

    I had a quick question about applyingf or B2 visa from delhi even when the reporting consulate for MP residents is Bombay. Are you suggesting that one can apply to Delhi consulate even when the designated consulate is Bombay.
    Thanks for your help.

    The U.S. consular section in New Delhi started accepting non-immigrant visa applications from applicants residing in the Chennai consular districts on March 22 last year.

    Applications are only be accepted from applicants who apply in person, speak English fluently, have not previously been refused a visa for any reason, and can demonstrate need to travel before an appointment is available at the US Consulate General serving their place of residence.

    I'm not too sure how it works for Mumbai.

    Which consulate ???

    My Parents were working under Consulate A when their passports were done. Now after retirement (already retired) they plan to move to a place which comes under Consulate B.The house work is still going on and even though they go back and forth to check on the work.
    So while submitting a visa Appointment should they go to Consulate A or Consulate B. :confused: It might be possible that during their time of appointment they'll have to completely move to the new House.
    Your thoughts please.

    I think you should to help from agency which deals such type of matters
    there are many agencies in Delhi like SIFS India..
    you are from Gwalior so, you need to apply from Delhi Consulate bcz Gwalior falls under Delhi region and very near to Delhi just 300 KM far
