    November Bulletin: Lets track EB Approvals

    Guys, My PD date is July 31, 2007, which became current in Nov. 2011. EAD approved in Jan. 2012. Still says 'Initial Review' for 1-485. No RFE yet. Texas Processing Center. I am tired of seeing people with much later PDs getting approvals. Is anyone else in a similar situation? Since the dates retrogressed to Aug. 15, 2007. has anyone with pending 1-485 before this date got approvals? Also, is it true that people like me may have to wait until Oct. 2012, when visa numbers become available, though my PD remains current?

    Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

    I confirmed with VFS - for H1B renewal only, (same class of visa which is currently valid or has expired within the past 12 months) - you can use the same HDFC receipt, same DS-160 (even if it shows Mumbai) and go to any other consulate fro stamping.

    Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

    I stay in New York so it is Eastern Time Zone. I saw Nov. 29 date open up at 11:30PM (EST) so 10AM India time. But that was on Sunday (11/13). Yesterday (11/14), I din't see any dates open at all. Hope this helps.

    Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

    Yes, I was constantly checking last night - only Nov. 29 opened up for Mumbai and was available for quite some time and then in the morning it was gone....I am not sure if more dates will be released today as the consulate is shut from Nov. 15 to Nov. 19.

    Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

    It is a complete mystery as to why Nov. 21 onward dates are not opening up in Mumbai....I have been checking for the dates for the past week and a half, but in vain....The consulate is closed from Nov. 15 to Nov. 18, as it is relocating to the new location (BKC)....most people are taking appointments in other consulates such as Delhi, Hyderbad and Chennai.....Let's hope some

    Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

    Yes. I think you have to submit one of the copies of the HDFC receipt, along with other required docs to VFS three working days in advance of your appt.

    Rules for canceling visa appointment

    Below is from the vfs website: You can cancel your appointment only two times. After the second cancellation your HDFC Visa Fee Receipt is deactivated for 90 calendar days. You will not be able to book another appointment until the 90 days have passed. You can cancel your visa interview appointment up to two business days before your appointment unless your interview appointment is scheduled at the U.S. Consulate General, Mumbai. If your appointment is at the U.S. Consulate General, Mumbai you can cancel your appointment up to four business days before the appointment Were you able to get a date in Mumbai? I am trying from the last three days but no dates are showing up at all??
  13. Is anyone trying to book visa dates in Mumbai for November? I am trying for the past three days and there are absolutely no dates showing up. Please suggest!
