Seeking help with the Indian Visa

Dear External Affairs Minister Mrs. Swaraj

We appeal to your good nature.

I am an Indian-born US Citizen and almost all of my extended family is in India. I am married to a Karachi-born US Citizen. We have three US born daughters that have not been able to obtain visas to visit India despite trying multiple times. (File # USASV1671A17, USASV1672C17, USASV1675817)

Their Masi, who was educated nearby us in the US, and to who they are very attached, is getting married in early January in Jaipur. They have also never had the opportunity to meet their great grandfather who is 90 years old. Due to age, and health concerns, he has not been able to visit us in the US. We have tried for years to get visas for my wife, Noreen, and our daughters with no luck.

Will you please help us?

Respectfully,

Anurag Kabra

Hope to receive the visas soon! more  
Just received a phone call early this morning from the minister’s office seeking information on where the visas were applied for. Really hoping they can help us get visas soon as time is running short. Fingers crossed that my daughters will finally be able to meet their great grandfather. more
