I am an Indian Citizen and my wife is a Canadian citizen. We both become naturalized US citizens this month. My son is born here in US and none of us have our US passports yet and we are just about to apply for them. We have plans to go to India in the first week of October. The US passports seems to be taking about 6 weeks of time and the Indian Visa might take another 3-4 weeks of time. What is the best way to approach this situation?
1) Can I use my Indian passport for this travel? Will there be any problems for that trip or when I eventually apply for a OCI card?
2) Can I apply for my wife's Indian visa or OCI card with her valid Canadian passport with out having to wait for her US passport? Can we use Indian consulate in Vancouver for this purpose?
3) My son will be 1 yr old in October. What is the best way we can get him either an Indian visa or OCI card?
4) We live in Seattle and our consulate is San Francisco. Can we approach the Indian consulate in Vancouver?
Appreciate your quick response. Thanks.
