My Indian Passport is expiring on June 1,2022 and I’m planning my India trip in December and getting my visa stamped too. Will it be an issue while traveling back to US in Jan first week since validity of the passport would be less than 6 months. Anybody faced similar situation? Any suggestions?

Get you passport renewed in US it hardly takes 2 weeks and continue your plan. India allow renewal 1 year ahead of expiry

For any international travel Passport Must by valid for minimum 6 months, so you can not travel on this passport. https://www.indiainnewyork.gov.in/index.php/pages?id=WEEvaENpL3VyK3BxTER3cTFYYVJqUT09&subid=WXJDQ3lrelBNL1pqM3hwRWFobHQ2dz09&nextid=OVl6anJmcGhUYmFwNmNTbWtRcHM1dz09#:~:text=with%20this%20passport%20%3F-,A.,not%20travel%20on%20this%20passport. Try if you can give US address on passport. It shd make things quick

If you do so- you will get i-94 till your passport expiry date. So you will have to go out once more with new passport . Better to renew the passport before the travel

Get a tatkal passport NOW!

Like everyone is saying... please renew your passport now! its pretty straightforward and will take 3-4 weeks max. If you do tatkal its faster. Also, just a heads up, my wife's visa renewal was stamped by US consulate with the same date as her passport expiry which only reduced her 3 year visa by a few months but that might not be the case with you. So, makes more sense to get your passport renewed.

Tatkal renewal in US - got it in 5 days last week

like

I am in India and just had my spouse passport renewed and got it delivered at home within 3 days without using Tatkal service. Tatkal is useless unless you want in a day. Indian passport office people are sitting idle. You can fill up application online, take an appointment and can get the new passport back. You would need to plan Dropbox date accordingly. OR I believe if you fill up DS-160 with current passport and later get a new one, you would submit both passports during drop box and they would stamp the new one. OR Like people above said renew in US itself however it's always easy to renew the passport in the country of origin.

like

I was on the same boat, get your passport renewed first in tatkal- approx 5-10 business days. Then you will need to create new DS160 with new passport details and mail the passport support to update your visa payment fee to new DS160. Then you can schedule visa appointments accordingly.

like

Contd.: Tricky part is I’m trying to get a Dropbox appointment now and do not really want to renew passport now because DS-160 will have the current(old one if I renew) passport number. So, thinking what should I do 🤔

Get your passport renewed. I was in the same boat. Got my passport renewed in 2 weeks through tatkal. Fill another DS 160 with updated passport number and take it for your appointment.

It might not be always but I know someone who only got one year stamped because their passport only had a year left in validity. I would probably try to get a new passport, you are able to get it within 12 months of expiry.

Keep in mind if holidays in November and December and plan ahead

Guys any update on when can we expect Dropbox appointment? Sitting in the US and waiting to travel home :(

Thanks Guys! Renewed the passport in Tatkal. Got it back in 6 business days. I’ll fill the DS-160 now and schedule the appointment 🤞🏽 Appreciate all your inputs.

Waiting for December dates to open up. But slots get filled in seconds.
