I have Indian passport( renewed in USA 2016) where place of birth shown only district(Nellore - same as on previous passport) where as in birth certificate its shown as actual city name.
Now I am planning to apply for I 485 so the question is will this is be a problem during Green card process? If any one had similar situation and approved their I485 without any issues, would like to know so that will try to apply I485 as it is.
On the there hand, I am also trying to explore options on how to update correct city name in passport . Here is summery found on CKGS.
Visit the Embassy / Consulate in person between 10 AM to 12.30 PM and seek approval before submitting the physical application to CKGS.
Embassy/Consulate will annotate “CKGS to accept the application”.
Applicant should carry the following documents at the time of visiting the EOI/Consulate.
Entire application form duly filled and signed
Old/ Cancelled passports ( if any)
Revised Date of Birth / Place of Birth certificate
Document submitted to the substantiate applicant’s date of birth / Place of birth on his / her previous application.
Couple of questions on highlighted pointed above
- Is it not possible to update it over mail ? is CKGS visit mandatory for change of place of birth ?
- I didn’t submit any documentation of place of birth previously when I first got passport(except SSC marks memo). Do you know what document should we show as proof for previous application?
Appreciate the response if any one has through this process?
