Default Re: Advice for Visas & Interviews

Where is a good place to park a car while attending a US Visa interview at the US consulate at Chennai? The interview is early in the morning (745 AM). The options that I thought of were, near Rani Seethai complex or the road adjoining it (and walk across) or the Church adjoining the US consulate. Another option I thought was to park at the Parsn complex or The Park hotel. Would anyone who have used any of these or any other parking spots let know, please?

When I went for my interview I took a bus, but when I went for my wife, I parked on the bylane next to Saravana Bhavan on Peter's road. See if that works for you. The road name is Padmavathi road. Else, since you are going quite early, you can try your luck under the flyover opposite Saravana Bhavan as well.

Has anyone successfully disputed the refusal and got the schengen visa approved?
We 5 friends are planning a trip to Prague and Munich from 29th Nov and two of us got our application rejected by the Czech embassy. Thinking whether to contest or reapply via the German embassy? We are cutting it short and not sure what is the best way forward.
The rejection reason was that, "the information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and condition of the intended stay was not reliable". Coincidentally only the two of us work in the IT sector.

Guys I have a query about my US Visa. My US tourist Visa is in my earlier passport which ran out of pages and then I got a new one. So, last time (in 2016) I carried both the passports and there were no issues as such. I will be travelling again soon so wanted to check if there have been any changes to this rule. I will be traveling from New Delhi.

I traveled earlier this year and there was no issue. Just carry both the passports till the current visa expires.

For the information of other people, the review/dispute is a lengthy process. Spoke to a few people and determined that applying again is a better option. We just reapplied with a more detailed itinerary and got our visas 🙂

Info needed w.r.t US Visa. I need to apply for dependent Tourist Spouse/Kids Visa. I personally have a Valid Business Visa. A few questions :
1. Can I make one application for Spouse & 2 Kids?
2. Can I join them for the interview?

No, to both of your questions if you are applying for a B1/B2 visa
