@A1, yeah, they put all of their spend for their small business on it and they have diamond on delta

I once sat next to a senior guy from Ingram micro in F class. Put all corporate expenditure through their corporate AMEX. Never paid for flights, pointed them all and had no status!

It's not harmful to anyone else. Not everything has to be controversial. It's just an alternative that allows more ppl to benefit.

Question for the folks here that have recently gone through the visitor visa process for India: what am I missing?? I created the visa application form online and submitted it back in October for my dad and younger brother but is there a timeframe for when we hear back? The site is a cluster and I can’t figure out what I need to do in the meantime or do I just wait to hear back? Is there a step by step somewhere that someone can lead me to? Thank you and I owe you one!

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).
