Hi, I am Yogasundar and I am from chennai. my VI was on 07/07/2015, the time slot was 8.00am. I reached the Consulate by 7.00 am. At sharp 8.00 am, I entered the consulate. I was handed over a checklist for documents by a person who was sitting at the entrance. After arranging the docs, I handed the entire docs to him and he checked it again. He asked 3 photos, original passport and dd copy. After verifying the entire docs.. he gave back them all with a token receipt.
I waited till my number came up. There were 4 counters in chennai and My number came up for the 4th counter at around 8.25am.
My Visa Officer (VO) was an Indian lady. She was in late 25 and was very decent looking.
