Hello everyone,
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my query and potentially helping me in my current situation. My Indian passport is set to expire on Dec, 2016 and I will be applying to have it renewed this week. At the same time, I would like to book a visa appointment in Chennai to have my H1-B stamped which requires me to provide my passport details at the time of filing the application.

I just wanted to know if I can use my current passport for booking the visa appointment, or if I have to wait for the new (renewed) passport to fill this, considering that the H1-B stamp will be on the new passport?

Thanks again !

I recently submitted my inidan passport for renewal at New york and the student visa stamp has expiration date, which already expired. Now consulate officer giving me hard time saying that I am illegal, which I am not. They just kept replying that my visa is invalid.

I submitted the applications for the passports of my two sons today at CKGS in NYC. The lady at the counter asked me to pay for FedEx that I didn't opt and didn't pay with the other fee.
I told her that I would like to collect my passports by walking in, she said WE DONT ALLOW WALKIN except for Tatkal and Special cases. I had to give my debit card and she charged me for FedEX for two deliveries.
Is it the case? Or she simply extorted for the service that I don't need? Any thoughts?

Hello Everyone,

I have applied passport one year back. I had finished all formalities at Passport Seva Kendra after couple of days I got call from verification officer.
Meanwhile, I got job so I shifted to city. When officer called me I told same situation to him then he made adverse report on me and It took several months
to send report to passport office and getting showcause notice from RPO.

After I got showcause notice, I went to RPO (I am telling you it was very horrible experience @RPO) they took 5000 fine and reinitiated verification for current
address. I waited for verification and it is done. After one day, I got message from passport that officer made adverse report on me for not staying one year
at current address.

I decided to make RTI on the same. I had applied and got message from passport that your passport is ready for printing

Happy ending. RTI really worked

Hi all,

     I took my child to PSK center, I have name mismatch in my passport and in my kids Birth certificate. With this I was asked to resubmit by correcting my name in birth certificate.

     now name change is done in birth certificate, but I travelled to US and my wife (have no address proof of what I applied for my kid ) had to take my child to passport office.

        Will they accept by submitting the same documents which I submitted earlier (address proof of mine)

Hi All,

I was issued with Indian Passport I was married. Now that I am married, should I add my spouse to the passport by requesting Re-issue of Passport. Without adding his name in my passport will he and my kid get US Visa and will he and my kid be allowed to travel? He just applied his passport now and got my name in his passport as Spouse. But wanted to know whether I should also get his name added in my passport in order for him to travel?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, passport application was made in Maharashtra in October 2015 and police clearance was signed off by the senior officer at the police station in early December. However, application does appear to have moved to the next stage (i.e. no message sent of progress) or status updated on the passport website. I understood that police clearance in Maharashtra only took a week.

I would like to hear views on the following:

(1) what can the applicant do if where there does not appear to be any progress in processing passport after police clearance? and
(2) how long does it take to receive a passport in Maharashtra?

Thank you for reading my post and if you had similar experience, please share your news.

I live in the US and recently traveled to India. During my onward journey, I was asked to meet the airport security in Seoul, South Korea. I came to know that my passport has been flagged as stolen. The airport authorities verified my identity and let me proceed to India. I had the same question during my visa interview in Chennai and I clarified with the Visa officers that I have no clue about my passport reported as stolen and that it was a false complaint. I was granted my visa on the same passport and I started by journey back to the US with transit in Singapore and Seoul. I did not face any issues while I traveled from Chennai -> Singapore and Singapore -> Seoul. However I was not allowed to board the connection flight from Seoul to San Francisco for the same issue I had earlier. I tried to explain that my passport was in my possession and I never reported it as lost or stolen. But the US Customs and Border Security did not not allow me to continue my journey and I had to return back to Chennai.

Question for which I could not get any response from Airport authorities, I am hoping someone in the forum could give me some info on are:
1. How could my passport be flagged as stolen only when I tried to enter the US and not anywhere else?
2. Whom should I contact to nullify the flag that my passport is stolen so I can travel back to the US?
3. How is it possible for someone else (if it was the case) to report my passport as stolen? Has anyone faced similar issue?
