I filed for my Mom's GC and submitted all the required papers to National Visa Center (NVC). NVC then got the Visa Interview date for her (Apr 30). Also, NVC sent a letter explicitly stating that my Mom does not need to take any documents with her (except her original Passport and Medical test results).
When she showed up for the interview at Mumbai Consulate, the people at the Consulate did not let her in, stating that they do not have any of her documents. Mumbai Consulate people are asking her to fill in DS230 again. I have already filed all the required docs and sent to NVC. I called NVC, NVC said that she does not have to take any documents. NVC asked me to call Mumbai Consulate directly. I will do that this evening.
Now, Mumbai Consulate has given her another interview date, May 10. They are asking her to submit docs to VFS. NVC says no, my Mom does not need to submit any docs to VFS.
Has anyone of you filed or your Mom/Dad's GC and has gone thru the same process?
Your help will be much appreciated.
