  1. But the entry (X) visa only lasts for 5 or 6 years, while the multiple entry tourist visa lasts for 10, if I'm not mistaken. The X visa runs about 120 usd and the other is about 85 It's also important to mention that "foreigners visiting India on long term (X) visa need not register themselves with Foreign Regional Registration Offices (FRRO)/ Foreign Registration Office (FRO) as long as their visit does not exceed more than 180 days on a single visit. However, if they intend to stay in the country for more than 180 days, they should get themselves registered in one of the two aforementioned offices before the expiry of the 180 days." not sure if this there are any additional fees involved with the FRRO process. So if she doesn't really plan on staying beyond 180 days at a time, the multiple entry visa would be a better investment (cheaper and valid for a longer period of time overall). Just throwing that out there
  2. Just to provide some clarification, the Entry X visa is a "Multiple entry Tourist Visa may be granted for a period of 10 years to the nationals of USA, Canada and Japan with a stipulation that “continuous stay during each visit shall not exceed 180 days" This information comes from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
  3. That is correct I'll be eligible for my OCI next week...though sadly my spouse has been stuck in India for almost 2 years now waiting on his IR1 (thanks to a series of pandemic delays) It's very frustrating...but the purpose of my OCI would be for ease of travel in the future to visit his friends and relatives, and maybe to purchase a vacation home. I don't think I could live there unless I absolutely had to
  4. That's correct. There seems to be a lag between steps. It could be normal, or it could be because of coronavirus. I don't know why
  5. According to me I-797 letter, it says to contact them if nothing is updated after 45 days Guess it takes even long these days 😓
  6. Thank you,. it has to be over the estimated time before they will give you any additional information, so unfortunately you will have to wait a little bit longer before you contact them
  7. I received my I-797 dated 5/21/2019 approving the I-130! And as of today the USCIS website said that they sent the case to the department of state for visa processing I guess now I'll wait again until the NVC reaches out to me with additional information. i'm a little worried that delays will continue since all the US embassies overseas were closed due to Coronavirus for the last couple of months. Not having a solid timeline is very frustrating.
