I have been a silent read and follower of this site. Today I want to thank all the users for sharing their experience. It definely made me feel comfortable with interview process.
Overall process is very quick and smooth.
Today i.e 9/16 We had our visa interview at Mumbai consulate. Our interview was scheduled for 11 AM. So we were in the queue by 10:40 AM. This Q was out side the consulate building along with the boundary wall. We were asked to show our passport. The support stuff was checking and entering details on his ipad from the barcode that was pasted on the back of the passport during bio metrics. This Q moved very fast. In 5-7 min time, we were inside the consulate building.
There a security check was done (just like airport). After this check, we were allowed to go the waiting area that
has chair which is outside the hall / building of the interview window. We were asked to maintain the Q and were asked to seat n wait in that area.
As the line moved, We moved along the line.
Once, our turn came, we moved inside the hall / building where interview was being taken. at this point, our passports were collected and kept at the at first two(2) counters, where finger scanning was done. Then we were asked to stand and wait for our turn.
