How can we successfully reschedule our EB-5 consulate interview?

Our EB-5 interview has been scheduled at the Mumbai embassy for Oct. 11. However, we cannot make it for that date and have requested the embassy via email to reschedule. They have advised us to reschedule via their online portal and that they do not accept rescheduling requests via email. However, when we follow the instructed steps, there is no option to reschedule the consular interview on their online portal. I have followed up with them and they gave me the same answer. What is the usual way of requesting a different date for the interview? Can it be rescheduled at this point? What will happen if we miss our Oct. 11 interview date?

Try to contact the NVC to request a reschedule date.

Make sure you have documented your inability to attend and your attempts to reschedule, and also be aware that the Indian priority dates have retrogressed so if you miss these dates, you may not be rescheduled for some time if you are not current.

I would strongly advise on trying to attend your interview as it could be many months before they are able to reschedule you. You should write to support-india@ustraveldocs.com to try and reschedule the interview - I would not recommend missing the interview without confirmation that your request for rescheduling has been formally received.

I do not know of any other way to reschedule. I strongly urge you to try and make that date as it could be many months or even a year or longer before you get another date.

If there are no dates available, then keep checking, every day and every night. It could be a very, very long delay.
