Indian visa no longer allowed for certain US citizens of Indian origin?

Jump to last reply

It appears BLS has removed the option to get an Indian tourist visa if the person is from Indian origin, is a US citizen and no longer possesses an old Indian passport. This includes people who were naturalized in the USA decades ago. Also the option for very old and already canceled passports that recently did not require a renunciation certificate has been removed.

For a person of Indian origin, there is a significant additional requirement to obtain a renunciation certificate, with a packet of materials to send including the old Indian passport.

I am not getting any response back from BLS. Maybe I am missing something?
