Mumbai - Visa Dates Availibility

Recommended Posts

Dec 2nd 2011 date is available for Mumbai consulate now. (Even for non-renewal applications).

This is the only date available at the consulate as of now.

As someone else observed earlier, the dates seem to be opening up one day at a time.

Did anyone have any luck with visa dates in Mumbai for December recently? I have been checking at various different times during the day but haven't seen a single date for Mumbai !

30 Nov and 5,7,8 December are available for Mumbai throughout today, but only for visa renewal category.

For regular category, I saw only Dec 5 available for a short time yesterday midnight (around 3 AM EST on 24 Nov), but it was gone in the morning. Looks like they are opening it one day at a time for regular category. Pretty frustrating!

@gpangu - Only Dec 5th was open for an hour or so. I have been checking dates at late night for last 2 days but no luck, Mumbai is disappeared again. I am not sure when and how they decide which dates to open and since it is morning / afternoon in India, they are taken very quickly ! It is such a pain to wake up at 2:00 AM in the morning just to check dates.

Has anyone seen dates available in Mumbai after Dec 7th? Its difficult to understand because Dec 5th and 6th have been available for a while and I am not sure if further dates haven't been released or have already been taken up.

If you are returning worker on H1B, why don't you guys use emergency appointment module on VFS website. If you request emergency appointment with 1 week of time, you should be fine.

Also Mumbai Consulate dates don't open up until 10.00am India Time from my "date shopping" experience for last 2 weeks. Also Mumbai dates only open up max 4 days at a time unlike other consulates which have many days open. Sometimes slots are open 3 days before intereview date so to give time submitting documents. I went to new consulate on 4th business day it opened and they are slowing coming upto speed. You should definitely see more slots open up on a particular day in future as new consulate is huge and has huge churnout every hour of the day.
