Does address on i797 make any difference for passport renewal?

(Darshan Venkatesh Babu) #1

Hi @Anil_Gupta, do I have to have an Indian address proof if I don’t want to change my Indian address which is currently in my passport and keep as it is?

Also, I am showing my i797 as my legal status proof where the address on it has apt. 1 and my US address proof (state ID /bank statement) has apt. 2 as I recently moved. Will this be a problem?


Current passport has Indian hostel as permanent address. Aadhar card has parent's address

You do not need address proof for Indian address if you do not want to change it.

@Anil_Gupta thanks, do you have any idea about the second part of my question?

i797 only proves your US legal status. The address printed on it does not matter.

You will have to send proof for US address separately.
