US TOURIST VISA
People who want to visit the United States to meet their close friend’s / family members or for tourism, recreation or for medical treatment should apply for the US visitor visa (B-2 visa).
Before getting the documents required for US tourist visa, applicants of visitor visas should know that they would be issued visas only if they are able to persuade US consular officials at a US Embassy/Consulate that they are not visiting the country with an intention to become an immigrant of that country. They need to show reasons as to why they would definitely return to their home country. For instance, they should show that they are employed in their home country or if self-employed, their business is still operating, have family and assets.
Most important is to book the appointment for giving the bio-metrics (finger scan) and another appointment for giving the interview.
Children below 14 years and adults above 80 years are not required to visit the Consulate/Embassy for interview and can submit the documents at the visa application centre.
People who already had a US visit visa and now applying for renewal can get the visa renewed by booking the visa appointment at visa application centre and submitting the documents in person.
Process time: Passport to be collected from the VAC centre within 14 days after the visa is issued or Home delivery through Blue Dart can be requested.
