I am trying to renew my child’s Indian passport here in California.
The CKGS document checklist states that the copies of residence proof and i797 need to be notarized and submitted.
However, notaries in California are stating that they cannot verify originals or certify that originals are verified. What should be done in this case?
One of the bank’s notary suggested that we can submit an affidavit stating that true copies of xyz documents are submitted along with the application and the applicant is in possession of the originals.
Are you aware if this works or if this is how it is accepted in SFO consulate in california?
People who renewed before Dec 2018 I believe didn’t face this issue as the checklist did not show that these documents have to be notarized then. This seems to be new.
