U.S. Consulate General in Chennai stops Immigrant Visa petitions as of January 1, 2012

leave a comment »

The U.S. Consulate General in Chennai will no longer process Immigrant Visa petitions as of January 1, 2012. The U.S. Embassy in New Delhi and U.S. Consulate in Mumbai will become the only acceptance centers in India for Immigrant Visas. Immigrant visas are for persons who plan to live permanently in the United States.

Please note that this change does not affect temporary, nonimmigrant visa categories such as B-1/B-2, F-1, and H-1/H-4, which continue to be processed at all U.S. consulates in India, including Chennai.

The U.S. Consulate at Chennai will continue processing pending Immigrant visa cases, which were interviewed on or before December 30, 2011. They also will continue accepting requested documentation related to these pending cases.
