    Default Ugently need to go to india/passport will expire in 3 months

    Hello everyone,
    My mother is very serious and i might need to go back to india in days time my passport will expire in june 2008 end. The problem is if i send for renewal now it may take days and i might need to go in a week or so depending on the sitaution.

    My h4 is valid till september so my doubts

    can i travel out of usa like 3 months before the passport expires.

    can i apply for emergency passport renewal if so howlong does it take.

    or can i travel to india and then apply for passport renewal there as my passport is of indian orgin.

    Please kindly help me.

    To the best of Knowldge you can travell no issues. I did travell once, when my passport had only 4 month validity. As long as your are not applying for new visa you should be fine.

    Always better to call embassy on these matters.

    Not requiredto apply in the US for Indian PP in our embassy or consulate, you can do it in INdia

    or can i travel to india and then apply for passport renewal there as my passport is of indian orgin.
    Apply under TATKAL in India, and tell the officer you want to collect the passport personally, you will get it in 5 days. We got my wife's PP in 5 days, without issues.

    Please kindly help me.
