“Owing to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments in the USA, our Indian Consular Application Centres will not be accepting any in-person applications until further notice,” said VFS Global in the update.

However, Indian Visa customers can still apply via post by the postal process or through emergency visa services which have resumed by the VFS in early December 2021.
