I immigrated to Canada when I was 4 under my mother’s passport, and obtained Canadian citizenship within 6 years, all before the year 2000. I never had an Indian passport.
I’ve been to India since, the e-Visa process always seemed to be fine.
This time though, I had to use the paper visa, and they are asking me for proof of renunciation of Indian citizenship. I tried providing my mother’s, which includes my name under the Minors category, and providing my citizenship certificate which has the year I was made a Canadian citizen, but it was rejected and they want proof of renunciation.
I tried to start the application, but it requires me to go surrender my passport at Passport Seva… I am at a loss, I have never had an Indian passport. I can set the passport number to “00000” or “LOST” but every affidavit assumes I have a passport instead of never having had one. Is there a correct process for people like me who obtained foreign citizenship without ever having an Indian passport?
