In the wake of the COVID Second Wave, US Consulate in Hyderabad has announced canceling of all visa services starting from May 3 until further notice. This includes all routine non-immigrant visa interview appointments and interview waiver appointments.
All American Citizen Services appointments are canceled from April 27. However, the Consulate General added that emergency American Citizen Services and visa appointments will continue but only to the extent allowed by the local conditions.
On the other side, earlier this month, the US government raised red flag to its citizens traveling to India asking them to avoid all travel to India, citing an unprecedented surge in the COVID-19 cases in the country. It has asked the citizens to get fully vaccinated if travel is a must. Several countries have started canceling air services to and fro from India. As of now, there is no such announcement from the United States.
