Is U.S Embassy Working In India?

The United States as part of her precautionary measures to stop or limit the importation of the Covid-19 pandemic from other countries have limited and, in some cases, fully stopped the operations of her embassies across the world.

Every citizen whose country has relations with America would want to know the state of the U.S Embassy in their jurisdiction and India is no exception.

  1. Mumbai

  4. Hyderabad

The U.S Embassies in India are still open and operational but their activities have been more limited especially when it comes to visa applications.

According to the U.S Embassy in India;

  1. The U.S. Embassy New Delhi and the U.S. Consulates in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai are closed for routine visa and citizen services but continue to provide emergency services
  2. U.S. citizens and visa applicants who are granted emergency appointments at U.S. Embassy in New Delhi or any U.S. consulate in India must wear masks upon entering the premises and are prohibited from entering these facilities if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to anyone known to have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.
