Default Visa stamping at Mumbai

We are planning to visit India in the month of November. We are looking to stamp our passport with H1B/H4 visas at Mumbai. How we can select appointment dates for the week of November 9 to November 13.
I have tried to look at VFS website (https://www.vfs-usa.co.in) but not showing any dates after month of July...
Can anyone please help me?

Also, we are looking to stamp our passport the next day when we arrive in Mumbai. Do anyone know the good hotel near by embassy to stay?

I really appriciate your help.

Thank you.

Default Does anyone know where can I get cheap wada paav before going to the embassy

Nathu lodge is good to stay for 30 rs/night. This is behind the big koorakarkat near the laddoo baba temple. Just across the street from 2 coconut trees and coconut waterwaala.

Default dates open 2 weeks in advance

I believe dates open 2 weeks in advance. If you want appointment in Nov check in mid of October. I recently went for stamping in Chennai and experience was smooth.

Thank you all for your quick responses.
I will travel with my wife and 7 years old son. Is there any nice place to stay near embassy? Also, Can I get my passport back on the same day or I need to collect next day after stamping?

Thanks.

Make sure you post all the required document 5 "working days" - If appointment is on monday then your papers should reach by Sat of previous week....

Appointment on 29th June means your papers should reach latest by 19th [4 days is for weekend and one day is overlap].....

I had a bad experience when I went for interview at Mumbai consulate - When I reached the office they told me my appointment has been cancelled reason - document did not reach as per the expected time....I had to spend 10 days to get the next appointment...It was not a problem for me as I am from Mumbai...

Make sure you reach atleast 2 hours before your appointment time. local hawaldars make a mess of people standing in queue...

What is the best way to send the documents to the emabassy? I asked because I live in Ahmedabad and I am planning to go for stamping the very next day I arrive in India.
Thanks for your help.

Better you send the documents on the same day you take the appointment while you are in US....send it with priority - 2 days and with receipt acknowledgement...you will get atleast 2 weeks time after you schedule your appointment. [It will always be a touch an go situation..better you send the documents through Fedex or UPS the same day you take appointment...62$ for sending the documents is much less then taking appointment again and going through the same process....

Please visit VFS site and read all about Mumbai consulate...the rules at mumbai consulate are different from the other 4 offices

Website says fax a copy of passport at HDFC to obtain a visa fee receipt.

Please Note: If you are an Indian citizen resident in the US, to obtain a Visa Fee Receipt from HDFC Bank, please fax a copy of your passport’s data page to the person in India assisting you. That person will have to submit the fax to HDFC Bank in order to get a fee receipt issued.

Can we just send a copy of passport pages to the person in India who is going to submit the fees at HDFC? Or must fax to the person in India?
