I just applied for my passport..
I was just curious how much time does it takes to get a US VISA for an Indian.

Answer
It depends upon the type of VISA for which you are applying.  If you applying for a visitor VISA or immigrant (long term) VISA, and, how many people are on the list for their in person interviews.  For example, right now, if you live in Mumbai the wait time is 9 days.  This website will help you determine how long you will need to wait (just put in your current city or nearest major city) and will give you the estimated wait time:  http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/general/wait-times.html/  Also, you might find this website helpful, it has a lot of information and should help you with any further questions you may have about the VISA process: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/
