I am trying to book an appointment for Mumbai Consulate for a J1 visa (Research Scholar Category).
However, I can not schedule a consular appointment. It says “there are no currently appointment slots available”.
I can get an appointment for Fingerprint (OFC) (see the attached first screenshot), but no slot available for a consular visa interview (See the attached second screenshot).
My plan is to book a general appointment first and then apply for an “expedited appoinment” as my program date is starting on Feb 1, 2021.
Does anyone facing a similar issue before, in which you can not see available slots after MRV fees payment. How can I resolve this issue?
