Does the US consulate in Australia also mandate the biometric collection 24 hours prior to consulate interview?

Hi Anil,

Referring to your another post on having h1b visa stamped in Aus while going to validate PR, would like to know if that still works. I am planning to do the same sometime later this year.

Also is the process different from India. I am not seeing any reference anywhere where the biometric are done one day prior to consular interview. Does the US consulate in Australia also mandate the biometric collection 24 hours prior to consulate interview, or is the both process done same day (biometric collection and interview)

Thanks

The fingerprints will probably be taken same day. You will get to know while booking the appointment.

Note that you will need to provide an Australian address for passport delivery. They do not handover passport in person after stamping.

Hi Nayana,
We did our visa stamping in Sydney, Australia last year in October. So,both biometrics and visa interview happened on the same day.

The process is same but simpler than in India as only one day you need to visit the consulate.

And they hardly asked any questions and we got our passports back within 7 days.

Regards,
Keerthi
