Dates are available in Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkota but have not yet opened up in Mumbai for the week of Nov. 21st. I am not sure which website you are looking at.

Guys,

Mumbai consulate is moving to a new location. Not sure if they show dates for the new location or not. I was following the Mumbai schedule for the last month and a half. Their pattern was that they opened one day at a time about 7-8 calendar days (not business days) in advance at the 78 Bhulabhai Desai Road location. I took my apointment for Nov. 8th on Nov. 3rd.

You need to submit your document in Mumbai between the 5th working day to the 3rd working day before your visa interview. Say your interview is on Friday, the last day when you can submit your document will be the Wednesday before it.

I still don't see any dates for 21,22 Nov. following 8-12AM Indian time form EST. Do we need to submit one of the HDFC receipt while submitting documents to VFS Mumbai 3 business days before?

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.

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

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.

On VFS website, in document checklist for Mumba cosulate, there is nothing mentioned about submitting one of the copies of the HDFC receipt to VFS center three working days in advance of your appt. It mentioned to carry during interview time. If anyone submitted documents to VFS, did they ask for the HDFC receipt?
