I just don't understand why the embassy takes only a week to send back some passports and never for others. My passport was received at the embassy on 2/25/10 but i still haven't received it. I have travel plans to go out of the country next Friday. Today I applied for new US passport and now the Indian embassy is saying they might not issue an Indian tourist visa on my new US passport because i don't have my old Indian passport with me anymore (it was submitted with the oci application). This is ridiculous that new US passport is issued in a day, but Indian embassy said that they might not give me a visa to the country that I was born in.
This clearly tells us why we became US citizens and gave up our Indian citizenship happily...
I don't quite understand from your post(s) which passport you are referring to....is it your US passport or latest Indian passport that you sent for cancellation? Why did you apply for new US passport today?? could you please post your time line??
