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.

- 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.
