My parents are indian citizens holding a indian passport. They want to travel to US next month. My mothers passport is going to expire in october 2011 and she has already applied for passport renewal in the month of feburary.She did not get her new passport till now. We came to know that it is taking lots of time to get a new passport. She wishes to travel to US in june and go back in september. So my question is
1) Can she travel on her current passport to US and return to india 1 month before her passport expires?
2) Will she be questioned at the port of entry in US or India that the validity of the passport is less than 6 months?
3) Will my mother be questioned why she is travelling on her current passport when she has applied for a renewal?
I read in some forum that india has 6 month validity rule and that even though ur a indian citizen visiting US on visitor visa you will be questioned at the port of entry in india about having less than 6 months on the passport. IS that true?
Thanks in advance
