It'll probably be 10 days, but just FYI, there are no Dropbox appointments available in India. You'll have to pay the MRV fees and then check 3-4 times a day in hope that some slot opens up

This is very annoying but very much appreciate your input. Good luck in getting a drop box slot.

Can someone explain me this drop box process? My extended relatives are asking me if it's possible bro get a visa appointment in November through Dropbox, and I don't know what that refers to.

Dropbox refers to getting a stamp for visa extension without needing to have an interview. You simply go to a location to submit your documents, and get your passport back via courier
