Applicants may still come to the Consulate any time between 9 Am and 4 PM as walk-in applicants but now they also have an option to secure an online appointment on a specific date and hour, to suit their own schedules. By booking an appointment, applicants can come to the Consulate on their preferred date and time.
The go-live for the appointment system was on March 21. The first appointment slots will open beginning April 2, Monday. This appointment system is a pilot program.
