   Dear Ramesh Harisaran Singh,

Your document(s) have been collected from the US Embassy/Consulate

The passport number being returned is G******8

You have chosen to have your documents delivered to the following location:

Hyderabad, 1-8-384/385 Ground Floor, Gowra Grand, S.P.Road, Hyderabad, 500016

If you have any issues or concerns, please contact us at

And SMS - “Document for passport number G116108 is ready for pickup. Collection times are Monday through Friday from 10am until 4pm”

And when I check my passport status. It says “The current status of your passport is Ready For Pickup.”, though my passport is with me as it was returned to me at the time of interview itself.

what this implies?


Contact OFC and send e mail to consulate
