The upcoming US Consulate office in Hyderabad will be the largest US consular processing in South East Asia both in terms of the number of visa windows and overall area. It is being set-up in Nanakramguda and is going to be completed by November’22.
As David Moyer, Public Diplomacy Officer at US Consulate General office in Hyderabad, said that the centre will be unique, consisting of 54 visa processing windows as well as multiple new features. “In terms of the number of visa windows and gross square footage, the compound wall of the new consulate office will be the largest US consular processing post in India and South East Asia. The United States’ investment in the new Consulate facility is $297 million. The site consists of 12.2 acres and the chancery building alone is in 17,917 gross square metres,”
Even as the building spreads across such a large space, the premises would be of highest sustainable standards. “The new Hyderabad US Consulate office will be certified by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) at the GOLD level. The water use in this new building will be 81.72% less than a non-certified building. Mechanical equipment here has been designed to optimise energy performance at 50% lower than a non-certified building. Rainwater management is in the process of installation as well as protection of the natural habitat,” he further added.
The consulate officials also mentioned that the new complex will have much better facilities for the visa applicants. The exterior of the new Consulate will have covered walkways that pass through a garden reflecting the local geological landscape. Inside, the applicants will find a well-manned and large waiting room. The staffing will also be increased from 150 desks to 255 desks to reduce waiting time for applicants.
This is certainly good news for Indian students in Hyderabad and adjoining areas who are aspiring to study in the US. The number of students applying to US universities for both undergrad as well as postgrad studies is at an all time high and this is certainly the step in the right direction from the US government.
