US Visa OFC is the Offsite Facilitation Centre where US visa Aspirants have to get the biometrics captured. For all types of US Visa, this is the centre where you have your fingerprints scanned and photograph captured. This is different from the US Visa Consulate Office, where you actually get the Visa stamped on your passport.
The Visa Application centre provides the following services: Biometrics Appointment, Submission of Drop Box Visa application/221(g) application, and Passport Collection. Generally, you would not be required to spend more than 25-30 mins here.
The dress code is completely formal attire for both men and women. Tie and suit are optional.
