The US consulate general at Lincoln House in Breach Candy and the American Centre at Churchgate will shift to a new facility in the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC). The number of interview windows for services to visa applicants and US citizens at the new facility will increase from 13 to 44.
Lincoln House will close its doors to the public on November 15 and reopen on November 21 at BKC. The consulate cannot provide visa services between November 15 and 21. Consular officers will host a webchat on November 9 at 7pm to answer specific questions about the shift and its effect on consular services. The American Library at Marine Lines will reopen shortly after consular operations begin at the new consulate.
The new consulate compound will house all US government offices in Mumbai, including the department of state, foreign commercial service, food and frug administration and the foreign agricultural service. It will also include the Consul General’s residence.
The new consulate features state of the art green technology, including high-efficiency lighting, a gray-water recycling system, and a self contained waste water treatment facility.
