  • Something silly but imp

    I am phasing a very silly situation.
    I am a female, who is in usofa till last week h1b holder...
    now in india for a holiday of 3 weeks,
    I have to get my head shaved completely (tonsure), due to prayer in tirupati.
    which i probably cant postpone.
    Now my question is , when i go back to usofa will it be an objection at port of entry.
    I know this question might look silly,
    but would really like to know if any one come across any such similar situation, may be the hair style in visa/passport is different from the hair style at the time of going to usofa..

    Thanks in advance

        I (Male) traveled just after 15 days of shaving my head. I did not face any problems at port of entry in US. In India, the immigration officer asked me to take out my cap, spectacles to make sure I am the same person holding the passport. Hope this helps.

            I have a sikh friend who at one point didnt wear the turban and had a hair-cut but later had the turban.it did not pose any problems at all. Those guys can make out if you are a diff person ..hair-cuts or shaving doesnt matter.
