Backlogged in India: Nonimmigrant Visa Interview Times
If you are planning on having a nonimmigrant visa interview at a US consulate in India, make your arrangements early. All of the US consulates in the country are badly backed up, with waiting times of:
Chennai – 75 days
Hyderabad – 93 days
Kolkata – 96 days
Mumbai – 88 days
New Delhi – 100 days
These are the average wait times for nonimmigrant visas outside of the B, F, and J category, which have different procedures.
There are possibilities for expediting a nonimmigrant interview, provided there is a family or business emergency. Another option could be to process the nonimmigrant visa in a different country’s US consulate, as a third country national.
