We'll be shortly moving to CA, and in order to be eligible for tax exemption available on dependents,I'd be applying for ITIN for my child.
However I came to know that the recent changes in the ITIN application process mandates submitting the passport either in original or in the
form of a certified copy
The original passport could then be retained for sometime. As you can now guess, I'd choose not to submit any original
document. But I also don't know how to procure a certified copy of the passport.
Do you have any pointers? Can this be obtained from the Indian embassy in the US?
