Hi folks,
I'm visiting India this year arriving mid/late October and staying for as long as visa will allow (hopefully 5.5 months!).
Just wondering about current visa application times for the London Goswell Rd centre. It's been a while since I last went and I can't remember! I know it takes 3-5 days once they receive your passport, but what is this about booking in an interview at the application centre? How long does it take to get an interview?! If I remember rightly, the 'interview' is just the time slot for you to hand them your passport? Is that right? I think last time I applied online just under two weeks before the flight. Can I still get away with this?
Would be grateful for some advise as I want to cut it as fine as possible but without risking missing my flight!!
Thanks all,
Claire
