Despite this change, applicants can still submit their application forms at any of the five Visa Application Centres without charge.

Alternatively, they have the option to drop their documents at any US Document Dropoff Centre in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Cochin, Jalandhar, or Pune, with a fee of 850 rupees per application.

Assuring eligible applicants of the availability of interview waiver appointments in New Delhi, the embassy also mentioned that due to this consolidation, limited interview waiver appointments would be accessible for visitor visas in metropolitan cities of India.

However, applicants eligible for the interview waiver process need not fret as appointments remain accessible in New Delhi.
