Changing consulate after scheduling interview for H1B Visa stamping

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I've a question regarding rescheduling Visa interview in India to another consulate. 

I'm currently located in US, will visit India starting next month and I've scheduled my H1B visa stamping interview at New Delhi consulate this coming last week of December, but due to some urgencies at my work place I need to be back by the right after the Christmas break. 

Can I reschedule this to any other consulate in India, let say Kolkata coz I'm not getting any nearest available appointment slot in Delhi consulate. Has anyone gone through this and will this cause any negative impact on my interview. 

Thanks in Advance.

I think it can be done. They might just ask you why you came to Kolkata and did not go to Delhi, other than that should not be any different in terms of interview process or verifications.

If you can get time slots you can upate your visa to another consulate.

To be safe fill new DS 160 for your new location. Submit it and take confirmation pages for old and new DS 160 and get it updated at interview.

Please plan accordingly and give yourself some time after interview. Do not have tight schedule. If possible avoidtravel.
