I found this site very helpful to learn about the visa process. I am not clear on few things about the logistics on the appointment day (at New Delhi, if it matters).
If the visa is rejected then do they hand over the passport right away or does it have to be collected later on?
If the appointment is at 8AM then typically how long can it take for the entire process inside the Embassy? How early should one report before the appointment?
Does the embassy provide some help to older applicants (my mother is in late 70s) who do not understand English to navigating the process inside?
Do folks just have to wait outside the Embassy for applicants to come out or is there a better way to connect with the applicant?
thanks in advance.
