Hi Jiger
How long did it take you to get the COPR after your passport arrived at Ottawa? Also, how long is the single entry visa valid for?
Thanks in advance :)

Hey Nick,

I got my India Clearance from the Consulate here in the US. It only took us a couple of days. I would recommend you to get it from the US if it is taking longer than a couple of days in India.

Thanks.

I took my passport to the consulate personally as we stay in a city here in the US where they do have a consulate.

I would recommend you to ask your questions here on this forum (rather than personal email) as other ppl would also benefit from reading them.

O I see, so did they actually require to either review and hand back or keep your original passport with this miscellaneous application form and return with the PCC?

or just photocopies were enough? so then I can just include photocopies as I have to send by post and include pre-paid return since I can't drive to city during consulate work hours. thanks again!

Not sure.. different consulates have different processes & procedures. I dropped off my application personally at the consulate and picked it up personally. So it was Ok for me. I can understand your nervousness with emailing the passports out. But I think you shd be OK. I think just the photocopies will not do. Please call the consulate and find out.
