Passport reissue after deportation from us


Hi,


I need help regarding certain queries for passport reissue and related:

1. My passport expires in June, 2009 and now I am planning to reissue the same.

2. I was deported from US due to a CIMT charge in Jan, 2009. While arrival at airport, I told customs that I overstayed and they bought my version. I did put the same in papers they asked to fill in.

3. My passport has no stamp of deportation from ICE (US Immigration) which is a blessing in disguise.

I went to passport office to check my deportation cost, but they told to me fill the form and then they will check. At the enquiry, the lady told me that usually foriegn goverments dont share the data but one guy said that they would have data provided Indian embassy in US has shared the data with them. I am confused! Pls. guide me.

In the passport reissue forms, I will speak the the truth that I was deported even though my passport doesnt have any stamp! Pls. let me know:

1. If Passport office would know the deportation cost?

2. Would I have any problem in getting the passport resissued?

3. Would there be any be travelling to China on business Visa. I am into s/w industry and need to travel

4. Can I put permanent address as current address? Can I be penalized due to this?

5. I am married now but dont have marriage certificate. Can be penalized if I dont disclose in the form that i am married now?

 

Pls. guide me as I need your help! Seniors and experts - needs you advice on laws.

Thanks in advance

Regards,

Did you drop I-94 before departing ?

It used to be attached to my passport, but it seems ICE probably took that form out of passport while deporting me.

Dear When a deportee is deported from United States ICE do not stamp their passport but your passport number would be added to deportee list in CBP (Custom Border Protection) system. The reason they don't stamp your passport is because they are basically sending someone back who stayed illegal. When you leave united states they don't stamp departure stamp but the country to where you arrive will have your arrival stamp i.e. Indian stamp. Everytime when you arrive united states you get I-94 which you will deposit at airport ticket counter when you leave United states. This I-94 would be the proof that you left united states...........hence question of seeing departure stamp in your passport does not exist.


Your other queries of passport reissue shouldn't be any issue unless india have any problems. You have to understand two countries work as a cost center and they have to respect each others immigration rules. Let's say for example when a person departs india for U.S. arrival but does not fullfil U.S. immigration rules would be deported immediately not only that the airline who brings that person by fault is fined and also indian immigration authorities are fined for not doing their job properly. I think you should hire a immigration lawyer immediately because you might face some problems when it comes to passport re-issuance.

Yes, they should !!!

3. Would there be any be travelling to China on business Visa. I am into s/w industry and need to travel

No Problem once you get your passport and visa for china.

4. Can I put permanent address as current address? Can I be penalized due to this?

Yes you can keep your current address as permanent address you won't be penalized for tht.

5. I am married now but dont have marriage certificate. Can be penalized if I dont disclose in the form that i am married now?

It's better to disclose tht you are married and it's damn easy to get marriage certificate nowadays. You won't be penalized but there might consequences for falsifying the information especially when you require police clearance for passport reissuance.

Thanks man! Really appreciate your response. I am just wondering:

1. If Passport office would know about the reason of deportation?

2. After getting passport, would there be a problem in getting Visa to China given that I was convicted in US? Does Chinese consulate in India do a background/passpport check before issuing a business Visa.

Well i don't have any idea how consulates issue visa but it's totally upto them whether or not they should give you a visa regardless of your conviction. Lot of people in united states are illegal and then later they have been travelling to different countries i don't think you should have any problem. I suggest don't mention anything about your deportation if you are going for VISA.

I have very same situation. My passport has no stamp of deportation from ICE (US Immigration). I am thinking of renewing my passport which is expired now.

XYZ - did you get your passport renewed without any problem?

To all others: It may be a basic question but will our indian passport office know that i am deported ?
