I’m trying to figure out if I need to email the embassy to get pre-approved in order to apply with Tatkal?
- Is it a necessity or a good-to-have?
- Do I need to provide a good reason for applying with Tatkal or do I just need to ask for approval?
- What email should I send it to? I looked at the Consulate General of India, San Francisco, California : Contact Us website and I don’t see any general email I can use to ask for Tatkal pre-approval. All I see is them saying that they have outsourced passport queries to VFS and they say
Email: VFS Global - San Francisco
- If you have sent this email, how long did it take you to receive a response?
