Not able to Book US Visa Appointments - OFC shows Available

Hello Guys,

Need some help here . Visa - H4, consulate - Mumbai, time - March, 2021; issue - not able to book an appointment date for the interview.

I am trying to book an appointment date for H4 in mumber consulate. The portal is showing the available dates for “OFC”. But, when I select a date and time and hit continue. It gives a message as " There are currently no appointments available. Please press the back button and choose a new OFC appointment date". But I have tried it mulitple times with different dates and times (some showing as 11 available slots) and every time I get this same message.

I know people were able to book appointments. I don’t know why mine isn’t going through.

Please help. Much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This is an issue with the system. many are facing the same issue. When some users reached out to the support, they were told that, it was a bug and there were no appointments. So, technically you should continue to check or try later. If in doubt, contact USTravelDocs customer service
