My in-laws got the visa issued today (May 2 nd) at Chennai consulate. They tried to collect it on the same day, which they could not. Later for curiosity sake, I checked their passport status, under Tracking passport menu, in the www.vfs-usa.co.in website. It reports as:
" Your passport has not been handed over to VFS. Kindly contact our regional call centres or call our toll free no.18004 25 0025 for further queries.".
I'm worried & apprehensive, about this new status. Hope they don't have to undergo any more complications, additionally in getting visa. I also hope that this status in their website is a regular message, before the VFS issues the passport. Please correct my understanding.
Appreciate if you can share your experiences.
P.S: Their interview was very simple. My in-laws are farmers. In the interview, the consular officer, just asked only 2 questions.
1. How many kids you have ?. Ans: 2
2. Who is in USA ?. Ans: Daughter's family
Checked the 2 folders of itemized documents and granted the the visa. Our current status is permanent residents.
