Hello, my husband, kids and I have PIO cards. Is PIO card valid for travel? CKGS website mentions that PIO validility has been extended till Sept 2019. I called CKGS and embassy mutilple times to confirm but no luck (noone picks up).

Can anyone please confirm here? Thank you!

Please share if you find any additional information. All my research suggest that you can travel until Sep 30th, 2019.

It would be great if someone can share their first hand experience.

I emailed Washington DC Indian embassy & they confirmed that all PIO are valid to travel document until September 30, 2019.

I don't your travel date, but, if you are planning to travel before the end of June, please share your experience if you use PIO.

We are traveling in mid-July. Today I received the same confirmation from San Francisco embassy & Bureau of Immigration. I feel very confident now that there should not be any issue.

Did you face any issue with the airline here in the US or at the immigration in India?
