New consular section in US embassy

delhi Updated: Sep 15, 2009 01:24 IST

US Ambassador Timothy J. Roemer inaugurated the new consular section at the US embassy in New Delhi on Monday. The new facility is the result of a multi-year, $10-million expansion that will permit the embassy to provide faster and better consular service to the Indian community.

“This facility is a reflection of the enduring strength of the US–India relationship and demonstrates the United States’ commitment to our expanding people-to- people ties just as we are strengthening our strategic partnership for the prosperity, security, and democratic future of all our citizens,” Roemer said.

The new facility doubles the waiting area, triples customer seating, adds a modern queuing system to guide customers through the visa process and adds many new interviewing windows to ensure that visa applicants and American citizens can speak to an officer more quickly and in a convenient, modern environment.
