I think IV is ready to take this case with Dept of State. Please raise your voice at the other thread alive right now. Pappu is saying that if couple of people can support they are ready to talk to officials about this.

Billu, don't do that mistake. If they are lucky then they will get in if not then the consulate will simply cancel their appointment and ask them to reapply again. In that case, they will have to pay for the visa fees all over again and go through the entire process. I think you should take this issue to your local congressman and the senator. That is the best solution and I do not think IV will do anything for this since this is completely an administration issue with the Delhi Consulate. Summer time and too many people are applying for the visa and less staffs at the consulate too.

So do not select English and ask for a translator.

i think austingc is right. Taking an english appointment and then asking for a hindi translator will not be wise. Too many scenarios work against you - and if the appt is cancelled and asked to reapply, not only will you loose the money, you will add many more sleepless nights.

Not sure how your local rep or senator can help since it is Delhi consulate problem, but try contacting them and see if they can be of help.

How long does it generally take to get a hindi appointment?

Help him with his query if you can, else just ignore. Everyone here is a non-immigrant till we get our GC. His was a valid LEGAL non-immigrant question. I know you are frustrated with your GC processing, but don't show in on some random person.

We have recently done this thing at New delhi consulate. Took the appointment for English for my parents-in-law and when inside requested one of the girls managing inside for Hindi translation but she said when you go to the window just say that you want to answer in Hindi and the officer will talk to you in hindi and the same thing happened. Officer did ask the questions in hindi. This is our experience not sure if this goes with everybody.

Default english appointment seems to be a safe bet

ya i spoke to another friend of mine whose parents went for english interview at new delhi. without any request, the american officer asked them questions in hindi, which made them very comfortable. so, i think anyone wanting a hindi appointment and been waiting for 1-2 months can try the option of englsih. i will post my experience next week after my in-laws' interview in english.

Default for the benefit of those who are looking for hindi appointment at new delhi

thanks guys for all the info.

i had a tough time getting appointment for my in-laws for visitor visa in delhi in hindi language. After looking for more than a month regularly from 6pm to 1am central time every night (every 5 mins) and from 5am to 8am central time every morning, when I did not find a single open slot for hindi, i took english language appointment finally last week on wednesday at 8.30pm central time. dates were available for july 28,29 and 30. since then i have been tracking dates for english appointment and i have seen dates for august 9,10,11,12,and 13 in english at new delhi almost every day around 8.20pm central time till 9.30pm central time.but till now, I have not seen a SINGLE hindi appointment slot at new delhi consulate!!
