Yes, if this is true, that is the best option for you. Bear in mind that even if you get the new US passport, you may have to get the PIO card endorsed with the new US passport number, and that looks like one heck of a procedure too....

mmillo, your case seems to be different than mine, you had a valid passport and PIO but no visa stamping right ? your problem was probably ignorance on part of indian immigration . my kid has used PIO 3 times so far with no issues anytime. i guess it differ for every person who works in indian immigration

Hi gcseeker2002,

Please share the experience of your India visit. Did you face any issues because of your son's passport having validity less than 6 months?

We had absolutely no problems, we even stopped over in France for a day. We just renewed the passport by regular process, and got it renewed in 2 weeks.

Question US passport renewed

Hello,

I have an urgent question. This is about my daughter who has a PIO card and US passport.

My daughter's US passport was expiring and we have renewed it. So now we do have her new (renewed) US passport.

Question: We are going to India next month, do I need to endorse her new passport from Indian consulate?

I am getting mixed feedback from different persons. Some say i can carry all 3 (old passport, new passport and her PIO card) and there should be no issues. However some say that it could be a problem if I don't get her new passport and PIO card endorsed with updated information.

If at all endorsement is needed, how do I do this? I am in CA and looking at CGISF website but could not find any direct link for information.

appreciate in advance. Thank you

What is the need for endorsing a US Passport @ Indian Consulate ?

For entry to India, you are using her PIO card. juz carry the OLD passports, you should be good.

Default I think you Need to get new PIO card

I think you need to get a new PIO card as US Passport has changed. When i applied for my daughter they said its good till the current US passport expires. Just check with Indian Consulate. If you need to get a new one it take 1 week else you can use the old one

He shouldn't have any problem as long as he has valid PIO card. My shuttled between Hyderabad and New York for about 7 times just with the PIO card.

Glad you could travel peacefully. These journeys can be difficult. A word of caution for your future travels - carry your child's old passport (the one that has the PIO/OCI stamp) in addition to the current one and the PIO/OCI card when you travel.
