Many people experience that when they try calling the consulate, either the phone call does not go through or no one picks up the hpone. The Consulate receives a high number of phone calls every day. Therefore, whenever possible, it is best to send an email to them. Consulate endeavors to answer all emails within 24 hours.
Some agents are claiming to have been appointed by the Consulate General of India and are misleading the public by claiming so. With the exception of BLS International for Indian Passport and Cox & Kings Global Services for OCI, PIO, Visa and Renunciation, no other agents have been appointed by the Consulate and that the Consulate deals with members of the public directly.
Some Indian Consulates conduct camps at various locations where the persons can go and get their needs taken care of such as passport, visa etc. However, the Indian Consulate in San Francisco does not organize any such camps anywhere.
In addition to other means of payments, the Consulate accepts Debit Cards with a service charge of $3.00 (three) at the counter.
Cash is NOT accepted at the counter.
