On March 6, 2018, the US Department of State announced a change in the location of certain greencard interviews in India.
In summary, for interviews scheduled on or after April 1, 2018:
- The US Embassy in New Delhi will no longer conduct interviews for US Permanent Residence for the spouse (IR1/CR1) and the unmarried minor child(ren) (IR2/CR2) of a US citizen
- The US Consulate General in Mumbai will begin conducting interviews for US Permanent Residence for the spouse and the unmarried minor child(ren) of a US citizen.
The change includes cases already in process and going forward. The National Visa Center will notify applicants of the specific location of their interview, along with details relating to visa interview preparation.
This change is for the purpose of consolidating visa processing of this type in Mumbai.
