F1 VISA – Troubles & Efforts

I applied for a F1 visa and had my VI on 6th July. After being told that my visa has been approved subject to admin processing, I submitted the required documents on the same day. The pink slip said it will take atleast 8 weeks.

Its been 24 days and no update.


  • Mailed the President of USA  – no response
  • Mailed the Indian Embassy in USA  – no response
  • Contacted VFS USA Delhi – Got a standard reply that its up to the embassy.
  • Getting in touch with a specialized agent

Thanks to Vik Murty, Stewart Welding for their sincere efforts and to all my well-wishers.
