      Salam all. To Pakistani citizens living in the USA:

      Have any of you sent your passports for renewal. I need some info/experiences/procedures/documents required. Mine will be expiring 11th next month. I think I got the two forms that I need for the whole process but wanted to check with you guys for additional info. I am a pakistani living in MI on H1 status. I do have the old NIC(National Identity Card). From what I hear, we need to get the updated I.D. Card which is called NICOP(National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis). At this point I have the Form 'A' for the renewal of passport and the NICOP application(which for some strange reason needs to be filled out in the english form and the urdu form??????????). Any info/help would be great. Thanks guys. KH.

      Follow the guidelines on the application. For passport you have to fill both english and urdu forms. But first mail the form for ID card, once you get the Id card, then mail the forms for passport. it takes 6 months to get the ID card because it will be coming from pak, passport take 14 days only....

      You passport doesn't have anything to do with your job.

      Asif, from what I understand, you can still apply for the passport using your old I.D. When you do that though, they will only renew your passport for one year. About getting NICOP, I sent them the application and waited for 6 months and never got it. I gave up on it and then when I visited pakistan the next time, I just applied for a regular new I.D card which I got within a month or so. My folks back home mailed it to me here. I used that to apply for the passport renewal next time I needed it without any issues. As for the NICOP, I am yet to receive it and its been more than 2 years.

      If you are not sure, just call Pakistan Embassy. I think Michigan falls under NY Consulate. Their number is 212-879-5800, 212-517-7541.

      you have to submit the visa on the passport to HR? never heard of that before and I never did that myself. I have had a job on H1 for 5 years. The employer's only concern is your H1 approval and thats what they need to have a copy of. Your visa on the passport is not even required for H1 (that is if you don't need to travel) and it may even reflect the name of your previous company.

      I have heard that the new machine-readable passports can only be 'made' in Islamabad.. so once you apply for a new passport through the embassy/consulate in US, make sure you give enough time in your travel plans. 2 weeks is the minimum (w/ urgent fee) that I have heard. Check from the embassy before making any travel plans.

      I think your state ID or driver's license would do that...you don't need documentation from ins..

      "Proof of resident in US (Original or notarized copy of green card /valid US visa or driving license)"

      You can get the notarization from your bank

      Send a copy of your H1 approval, not the original. Send old passport. If you have any I-94 stapled with your passport, take it out before you send your passport for renewal. If it has any valid visa stamp on your passport, they should send the old expired passport back to you with the new renewed passport. You should have it attached to your new passport. Make sure to make a copy of your visa on your expired passport before you send it for renewal.

      Please make sure that when you apply for Passport renewal you should also apply for the new (computerized) National ID Cards for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP) otherwise they are going to send your application back to you.
