When will US Consulate Services in India resume?

The US consulates in India are still running at minimal capacity with no in-person programming since March 16, 2020.

It is not sure as to when the US consulate services in India will be resumed, but it is very likely that it would only be after the pandemic is contained.

Some argue that this can extend up to August – September in 2020.
