Tourist visa application
Hi Guys,
I am planning to go to India with my kid. My kid has/had PIO, which we used before to travel to India. Now, I am applying for Tourist visa.
In the application, in "Previous Visa/Currently valid Visa Details" section, there is questions such as did u visit India, the places visited & such. It also asks for the
Last Indian Visa No/Currently valid Indian Visa No& Type of Visa.
I am stuck there.
When I say Yes for visited India, all below questions have to be answered, but no option to say my kid has PIO. what do I do? has anyone faced same situation.
Do I say Yes for visited India & instead of visa no say PIO & select tourist visa from drop down OR do I say no for visited India but then no further questions are asked. Since saying No would be wrong, what do I do?

H4EAD Visa Experience
Hi Folks,

I am planning to visit India this October. H1B and H4 visa stamping expired on Dec 31st, 2016. We have I-797 extension till Dec31st 2019. My wife has H4EAD and is working as a FTE for a call center.

When we visit India, we will be going for our visa interview again as we do not fall into the dropbox category.
1. How is the experience at HYDERABAD consulate for H4EAD spouse?
2. With the current immigration scenario, would there by any problems for my wife if she tells the VO that she is working on H4EAD?
3. What kind of questions can she expect?
4. Is there anyone else in the same bucket or did go through a H4EAD visa interview?

Please help!

Thanks!

question about filing I485 for spouse
Dear friends
I have a question that nobody I talked to is able to clearly explain to me. I'll appreciate if anybody has knowledge about my issue. my details:
> Filed EB1A based I485 in Dec 2018. Waiting for interview (they have interviews now for EB1A)
> Plan to marry an Indian citizen (who is still in India) in October this year.
> I want to apply for her green card before my case is adjusted and then having to file for her as family (which will delay her case for years)

My questions are:
> Is it OK to apply for her after my interview (which is not scheduled yet)
> Can I also file for her from India?

I would appreciate any other helpful suggestion that can make me get her here faster and get her green card also soon.
You guys are wonderful. May God bless you

Excellent Service for 10 year visa
Applied for renunciation & visa on April-02. All documents sent from Detroit to Chicago.

Documents have been dispatched for return to Detroit on April-06 and should arrive on April 09th as per Fedex tracking number.

They sent email and text alerts at every step.

Very positive experience so far.

Anyone applying - make sure you read instructions thoroughly.

Need help about child visa for school in India
Could anyone help with following scenarios? I need to confirm before i decide to take British citizenship for my daughter.

I and my daughter (12 years old)holding UK Passport (British National) and my wife holding Indian passport( Indian National). Because of of some personal reason (parents health issue) my wife and daughter need to go back to India immediately permanently (may be for 5-6 years).

Now if my daughter OCI card in progress stage (after application it will take 2-3 months) , then what type of VISA she needs to that legally should able to go to school in India while OCI in progress?

I thought its entry Visa , however in the "document required" section of VFS site is asking to submit letter of recommendation(on letter headed paper from the employer of the person holding the Employment visa ). However she is travelling with her mother(Indian national), how can I get such document?

or some different type of VISA is needed(for admission into secondary school)?

Please help.

Reapplying for visa: Control number
I applied for an Indian visa in 2015 but the request was denied. I am again applying for an eVisa and there is a question that asks: Has permission to visit or to extend stay in India previously been refused? Then, it asks for details: date and control number. I can give a date, but I have no idea what the control number is. Does anyone know how to complete this question, and what a "control number" is or where I get it? Thank you!

Someone Please provide an alternative to CKGS
I wish i could have given negative ratings to this company.
Shame on the name of Indian governments extended service.
They literally push u to a corner to opt for a courier service to make some extra bucks!!!
I work 2 blocks away from this visa center and yet they pushed me to pay for courier as one midget manager came out said "Its instructed by the embassy" You cant come and pick up?
I mean come on, give a better excuse.
I RELUCTANTLY paid for courier to get my passport in fedex mail after visa is issued and guess what?
These idiots have no clue where my passport is and keep on making stories even after 15 days !
I was told that my visa is already issued and passport will be mailed out but nothing happened since then and CKGS staff and manager looks baffled and clueless on what further excuses to give me.
They dont even have guts to say we LOST IT !

I have already lost $4k on cancellation of my entire itinerary to India and I will take some legal action. I wish i can get some more people join me in suing these CKGS retards.
If anyone in Indian government is reading this please replace these people OR we are more than happy to come directly to the Indian consulate or embassy.

The manager at the office a little fellow who looks like Asian ( I am sorry but he never bothered telling me his name) was so pathetic in telling me to just wait and cant say anything!
Even after 15 days ???

Even government services have improved in India but these sort of money sucking private enterprises are bringing bad name to India and its industries abroad.
PLEASE SOME ONE SUGGEST A WAY TO NOT DEAL WITH CKGS IN THIS PROCESS AND HOW CAN I GET MY PASSPORT BACK FROM THESE PEOPLE WHICH I BELIEVE THEY HAVE LOST IT AND NOT READY TO ADMIT IT?
