A Warm Welcome to US Consulate @ Paigah Palace, Hyderabad...:)

Will not be fully functional until mid december
 
Yes, thats good news specially for the applicants in that region. In my opinion applicants from MP and Karnataka and AP will fall into that region I guess though not sure but just my 2 cents. Right now they just opened the office but I dont think they will be fully functional till mid-december 2008.

Unable to get appointment at Hyderabad consulate
 
I am planning a trip to India in late december. I went to the Hyderabad consulate website to see if I can get a appointment for my H-1B renewal for Dec/Jan09. I have read that the consulate would be functional in December but they have no system yet for taking appointments. I guess one more trip to Chennai! For this trip, I will enjoy the new Shamshabad airport.

Yes, that will help the chennai consulate lines. And it is great for hyderabadis since we don't have to go to chennai, sometimes multiples times for a single stamping.

This is great news for huderabadis....no more chennai visits....we can save lot of time in travelling....

We all should proud for having US consulate....

Not very sure..
 
But I think it's thanks to CBN who pulled the consulate to Hyd when they were debating to have the consulate in Hyd or Bangalore. From what I know YSR govt just boomed up the realty prices but nothing else, though realty went up in other parts of the country too.

PS: I'm not very sure if it was CBN who got the consulate to Hyd but just expressed my thoughts as we are talking about consulate/Hyd/how proud we should be etc in this thread.For those who know better or disagree with me please feel free to do so by posting in the thread but not by giving red/accompanying mssgs. These days I'm so cautious that unless absolutely sure I don't take any chances with posting on threads so as to avoid upsetting people even remotely. Felt it's been long since I've been easy on IV threads..so I'm posting on this thread :)

Thank you.

Also thanks to the sleeping gowda(devegowda) family and congress party in karnataka for being so busy amassing massive amount of personal wealth and fighting with BJP that they gave up any interest to ask for the consulate in Bangalore.

He is the ex-chief minister of Andhra pradesh, a state in India of which Hyderabad is the Capital. As for CBN's agenda, he is too concerned about his chances of getting re-elected to worry about other things. My take.

Aligning with Communists, he may not the same reformist as he was before. It was those reforms that brought the change. Initially everwhere reforms face stiff resistance and and as time goes by people bear the fruits. But people of Ap could not wait and threw him out of power.

Now we see his reforms being applauded everwhere.

Any idea when Hyd would start Visa processing ?
 
Is VFS the only site to book appointments (for HYD) as well ? I hear the news that HYD is operational but I don't see it in on VFS website to take an appointment - I need one for 1st week of Dec

I beleive the Hyderabad Consulate will be fully functional only by the end of 2008. So we can assume that it starts offering visa services in early 2009. Until then the web site suggests to go to Chennai Consulate.

As Hyderabad is very popular in those lines.
