Default Quick Question - Chennai Consulate

Hi-

My H1 visa is getting expired in Sep'08 and I will be going to to India during Nov'08 for my wedding, followed by my H1 Visa stamping/H4 for my wife at Chennai Consulate.

My question is, in a normal scenario how long does it takes for the H4 dependent Visa approval/Passport Issue ? Does it differs from each of the consulate office in India ??

Because I heard from some of my friends, that lately the US consulate in India does the back ground checking for the dependent visa(H4) and it
takes minimum of 4 weeks of time to approve the VISA and send it to you.

As I don't have vacation and need to report to the client, I am planning to return to US with in 3 weeks from the date of marriage.
Would it be possible to get mine & my wife's visa before 3.5 weeks of time ??

Lately, if anyone of you have gone through this kind of scenario, please update me on this. I truly appreciate it.

Thanks
Sam

Default Congratulations.

Congratulations!!.

The H4 process should be an easy one and first time, should be no problems. Not sure whether they will do Back ground check on a H4, till end of 2007 all of my friends got it pretty quick, in about 3 to 4 days.

They implemented PIMS after Nov 2007. So your H1 may get slight delay and not sure about new H4 rules.
