My mother has came to USA on visitors visa, yesterday her passport got damaged by water from which her photo in her passport 1st page got shaded, but her photo in USA Visa and rest of all her details are perfectly visible. Her passport in going to expire in 2021 and her USA visa is going to expire in 2016. She has to leave to India in couple of days.

1. My question is "Will she have any problem while going back to India, so that she can apply new passport in India".

2. Can I apply for re-issuing passport for her in USA?

Please suggest.

I will be very thankful to you.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi friends,

By the grace of god, my mom went to India safely with the damaged passport( it was not fully damaged, just her photo in passport first page was shaded). At security/ Imigration check in both USA and India they asked how the damaged was done, asked to show her other ID cards(she showed her USA visa photo), and asked to apply for new passport in India.
Hope this information will be help full to someone.
