I live in the United States and I have an F1 visa and an Indian passport. I am traveling to India in a few weeks and my passport has worn out. The seam that holds the inside pages and the cover comes off, and only 2-3 threads remain.
Will the Indian Embassy solve this sewing problem? Can they do this?
I also plan to issue a new passport. But my appearance has changed a bit, my Indian address is different and my father's name is different (only last name). Can I apply for a tatkaal passport? It doesn't matter if they keep the same information and photo, but when the embassy sees my other support documents, they might see a clear change of address, photo and name. dad.
In addition, if I have a new passport, I should always keep my damaged passport as it contains my visa. Immigration and customs can still stop me from saying that my damaged passport is badly damaged and have the damaged passport delivered to me, right? Is there an easy way to get all my student stamps and visa on my new passport without going to the embassy?
Also, I think my paasport was marked as "damaged" by immigration the last time I traveled
