Good Morning. I am a US Citizen,and my wife is a green card holder(currently CR1). We just had our baby in India, We got the basic information on how to apply for CRBA for the US Embassy website for Chennai, but we need answers to these specific question, your guidance is much appreciated.

1) When we come in for the CRBA process in Chennai, can we just walk -in or do we need to have an appointment? If so what is the process for that.

2) Once we come in to the embassy, submit the required documents, and pay the required fees, and everything is approved, can the baby travel to the US right away? Or does the baby need to wait until a passport is issued in order to travel back?

3) It mentions on the website the process if only one parent is in India ( which is our case) Is it mandatory for both the parents to be there for the CRBA procedure?

4) In the above case how do we make an appointment for the green card holder wife to go into the embassy, or can she just walk in as she will be applying for the CRBA process>

Please guide us, Thanks.

I don't know of how much help I will be but I just did this a few weeks ago in Mumbai.

1) You need an appointment

2) The baby needs a passport and will require an exit stamp to leave India (they will tell you how to get the stamp)

3) Both parents need to be present if you intend to also apply for a passport. The baby must also be present no matter what.

4) Email them or give them a call- either way they can schedule an appointmet for you- and answer any of your questions.

And don't worry, the process was fairly simple and they sent the passport and birth certificate in just a few days by courier. You as a U.S. citizen male will also be required to sign an affidavit that you will support the child until he or she is 18 years old.
