Did anyone got their passport renewed from CGI-NY?

Is it for sure that they are only issuing passport for 1 year?
I will really appreciate if someone can share their experience.

Default Passport renewal after 5 years expiry

I was initially issued pp for 5 years. Last year in '08 when it was expiring, i sent application for renewal of passport based on my EAD. However, instead of renewing it for another 5 years they renewed it 1 year only. When I called the office, they said that they receive tons of pp's like on EAD which can be renewed for a year only.

Did anybody faced this same problem? Can I apply for new passport based on I-485 receipt and would they issue passport for another 5 or 10 years?

Thanks in advance

What crap is it? What passport has to do with your visa status? Only thing they need know is how come you are outside country.

I got it back in 5-7 days for 10 years. Sent CGI San Francisco a letter of appreciation.

Champu, that was exactly my question to the Consulate (what pp renewal has anything to do with ur visa status). Ironically, i got the reply that thats how they do it. Strangely, if I would have used my H1B stamp instead of EAD, I would have got pp renewed for 5 years.

Default Passport Renewal @ CGI - NY

Yes they have crap rules.For H4s they give one year extension .For my daughter they gave one year instead of 5 years and my wife (has EAD) and me got 10 year extension .There is no use of argument with them.But they charge full fee $25 (Child fee) for 5 years says next extension no need to pay fee.Last year my family have to travel to India on emergency and I got for 5 year extension in India paying again fee .They didnot accept fee paid in NY .I have shown the receipt also.I thought of writing letter to NY CGI but didn't as I thought to be waste of time.

I had got my passport renewed couple of months back and got it for 10 years.

I will suggest you to go and check with them. I remember when i was at the counter, i had asked the lady that how much will be the validity of my passport, and she replied saying we have an internal system to calculate the validity which we cannot disclose.

I will say try to go and talk to them. I hope they talk to you nicely.

If the proof of legal status (I-94/VISA/EAD) is valid for less than 6 months they generally issue a 1 year Passport. You can take this passport back after a year and get an extension for another 9 years. There is no fee for the extension of a short validity passport.

http://indiacgny.org/php/showContent...d=223&sub=sub3

They may have additional criteria for minors.

My mother-in-law was in US last year on Visiting VISA the counsulate issued her a 1 year validity passport.
I applied last month using my EAD as proof of legal status. I got a 10 year validity passport.
