U.S. Makes the Visa Application Process More Convenient for Indian Visa Applicants

On November 18, 2010, and in an effort to make the visa application process more convenient for all Indians, the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi and Consulates General in Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Hyderabad now accept visa applications from across India at all visa facilities, regardless of the applicant’s home address or city of residence.  The goal of this change is to facilitate legitimate travel to the United States and to best capture the dynamism of India’s growth across the nation.  The U.S. Embassy also announced a re-organization of U.S. consular districts throughout India.  Said U.S. Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer, “With these changes, we believe our Consulates General and our Embassy in New Delhi will be even better positioned to support and serve Indian visa applicants, as well as American citizens and businesses throughout India.”
