US immigration in India

US immigration in India
The US has a thriving technology and IT sector, not least in the world-famous Silicon Valley, and workers from countries all over the globe are attracted by the opportunities for career progression and further training.

India is one of the countries which is particularly strong in the technology industry and US immigration is India is therefore unsurprisingly high.

US immigration types:

There are many ways in which you can apply for a visa; you can enlist the help of an immigration consultant, you can download the forms online and you can post them back for processing. However, in order to facilitate the processing of US immigration in India, there is also a dedicated office in the country. 

During 2012, a total of 24,759 visas were issued by the immigration office in India, the fifth highest recorded, notching up a total of 5.1% of the total number.

US immigration process :

US immigration in India is dealt with by the New Delhi Field Office. This office holds jurisdiction for matters relating to US immigration in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Afghanistan. 

All types of US immigration in India are handled by the US Embassy in New Delhi, a part of the city where many types of high commissions and embassies are located. US immigration in India cannot be dealt with on either USA or Indian public holidays.

It is possible to walk into the immigration office in New Delhi without an appointment but there is no guarantee that you will be seen. Scheduled appointments are given priority for US immigration in India and it is only once the scheduled appointments have been dealt with that walk-in queries will be dealt with. In addition, the offices are only open in the mornings – between 9am and midday, leaving a relatively short period of time for queries to be dealt with. 

Not all types of inquiry can be dealt with on a walk-in basis; some require an appointment. The website for the US immigration in India office confirms which types of application need to be booked in advance. 

Queries can be dealt with in Hindu, Punjabi or English but you will need to complete your visa application in English. You may need to arrange for the translation of any important documentation as they will not usually be accepted in any other language. 

Fees cannot be accepted in cash by the American Embassy in New Delhi. Any individual wishing to pay their visa fees must arrange for a demand draft denominated in Indian rupees.
