Why can’t you get a 5 year multiple entry visa?

like

4 hours tops - evisa you can apply online

like

What I found from a little research on this is that for evisa if you are a US born desi and never owned an Indian passport then process is straight forward. However, if you were a US immigrant and owned an Indian passport in the past, then you need to provide documentation that supports the fact that you have surrendered the Indian passport and no longer citizen of India when applying for evisa.

Very easy as NG said, online you get 1 year validity

@A1 they increased to 5 year😀

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
