Hello, My name is Ms. B A Amin, I came in United State in 1985. Consulate of India Issued tourist visa for 10 year twice to on my old (expired) and new US Passport. My last visa was expired in 2009. I applied tourist visa yesterday for 5 Years. This time they asked for one of the following document copy of my green card, the Entry stamp when I was arrived in US (Old India Passport that was issued in 1984, I lost that passport since last 15 years), copy of my EAD, or copy of I 130 that my husband filed in 1984. I have the affidavit of my lost Indian passport with two witnessed signed and notarized by lawyers. In my affidavit I clearly written how I came to US and what was my passport number on what date I came to US etcÖ I have photocopy of the my lost Indian passport first two pages (Thank to god) but I donít have the page of Entry stamp of US Visa.
Consulate of India already issued visa twice for 10 year each on those document in past. They are asking for those documents year 1985 I donít have any document they asked right now. For I 130 USCIS say it will take around 3 months or more than that and I want to go to India in 15 march 2011.
I called to Travisa Outsourcing and explain my case. They also understand this is legitimate case. They also realized to obtaining 1985 documents. They told me still they are asking for one of the document but we can try but they might ask for that document. Travisa customer rep asked about my birth certificate and I said yes I do have the birth certificate, school leaving certificate and my old Indian passport copy and all other documents. They said send the application and let see what consulate of India can do on this. I am in US since last 26 years and I had never this problem but now to get document like 26 year old its something hard nut to crack for me. I am praying that they will issue my visa and some reason I need to visit India in 15th march 2011.
Any suggestion on this? Is anybody had any problem like this.
Any help on this greatly appreciated
