Hello Anil & Pankaj Diwedy,
Below is the answer I received from US travel docs administrator. They have asked me to cancel my existing consular appointment and start fresh as drop box appointment.
Thank you for writing to the U.S. Visa Service Desk.
We understand that you want to know if you would be qualified for the interview waiver and have query regarding the same.
In response to your question, we would like to inform you that repeat travelers to the United States may, under some circumstances, renew their visas without appearing at the U.S. Embassy/Consulate for an interview, under interview waiver if you meet all the eligibility criteria.
Please follow the link: https://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/renew-visa.html to know about the interview waiver, check the eligibility criteria, as we will not be able to comment if you would qualify for the same.
Also, we would like to inform you that as per our record you have scheduled your appointment on the following dates:
- Consulate Appointment: <Place & Date/Time>
- Visa Application Appointment: <Place & Date/Time>
Please be informed that applicants may use the same MRV fee receipt 5 times to schedule an appointment. The MRV fee receipt will become inactive after 5 uses.
Please note that if you do not qualify for the interview waiver then you may proceed with the appointments as scheduled as you will have to apply for a visa through the regular visa application process provided in the following link: https://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/step-2.html#how-to-apply.
Further, if you qualify for the interview waiver then you may need to cancel your existing appointments.
Please note that, if you wish to cancel the appointment, you have to cancel 24 hours prior to the appointment at the Visa Application Center.
After cancelling the appointments we request you to provide the information that is true and with best of your knowledge on step 7, select the correct answer as per the eligibility criteria given.
You should arrive at exactly the time of your appointment; there is no provision to wait in and around the Embassy/Consulate area. Kindly follow the link: https://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/step-5.html#security-regulations for information regarding Security Regulations.
We hope this information is helpful to you.
