  • Visa appointment on Dec 5th

    Hi,

    I had a visa interview scheduled in Chennai on Dec 5th which got cancelled due to US holiday. Did anybody reschedule their appointment? If yes, what is the earliest date available? For me it shows as Jan 8th 2019.

      Yeah.. I had similar experience. This is totally unfair given the appointments for other consulates have been automatically rescheduled.

          Guys,
          Till yesterday night, I was able to see next appointment date as 10th/11th. Now it's fluctuating between 14th Jan and 17th Jan.

          Do you know the reason we aren't able to schedule in December anymore? I am trying in Hyderabad.

                Very bad experience with consulate office responses on Dec-05 issue. My aged mother , wife & child completed OFC in Chennai and waiting for Consular interview on Dec-05-2018. We got message that consulate is closed on Dec-05. When we try to ask when can it will be rescheduled, the call center employees were unaware of the process & they told the cgifederal.secure.force.com will be showing "Reschedule consular appointment" link by end of the day.

                We travelled 400km far from Chennai to attend this interview. Think from family prospective, how can family with child can search for new accommodation in short time without knowing when is next appointment date. I keep on trying to contact Consular call center & NO ONE helping in this situation. very worst service I faced even I asked with Chennai consulate in facebook.No response.

                if consulate is closed for mourns for any situation, will they close & lock the office & throw away the key somewhere?

                why cant the schedules can be moved to the next day or any specific day in next week? how can Visitor visa parents/ elders manage this situation without knowing anything in online reschedule/travel arrangements?

                and still, the reschedule option is not displaying in the portal ? is this way USA consulate manage the critical situation ?

                if any consulate officers seeing this message, please help to get the applicants to get earlier appointments.

                  For some reason i never saw december appointment and i did check through out the day.
                  I have not even seen a reschedule appointment link as well , have you? it was always "New Application/ Schedule appointment"
                  Have you tried booking for Dec 10,11 when you saw that date

                    Hi All,

                    I have the same issue. They asked me to wait until today morning but it still shows the same. I called them up again and now they say to wait until today evening. This is frustrating.
                    Did anyone of you were able to book appointment?

                          Hi,

                          I am in a similar situation. I had my OFC appointment with the Hyderabad VAC center on December 4th and my interview appointment was scheduled for December 5th. The customer support representatives weren't helpful at all and weren't providing any indication on when the new appointment dates would open. The earliest appointment available is being shown as January 14th now. Any ideas if new dates would open up in December at all? Please share any updates regarding this on this thread.

                          Thanks,
                          Vishal

                            Hi, I did see many slots open in the morning only for Chennai and no other places. There were around 10 days with 20 avg slots/day available in December but everything was gone in 2 hrs. It did happen about 10-11 A.M , hope that helps in case you want to check tomorrow.

                              From what I tracked, Hyderabad slots dint show any changes, it was Chennai nfor some brief time. I even doubt if there were new slots in Hyderabad opened at all. Please update back if u see any updates
