Procedure for GPA to India from USA(Houston)

My Sister is a US Citizen Originating from India. Planning to Apply Via Mail/Post.

  1. Does she require to submit US passport while applying for GPA Attestation at Consulate General of India, Houston.
  2. Any other risks involved since we mail the passport…,
  3. Sending the notary attested copies of passport to Embassy, will that not suffice?

Basically, need exact procedures for US Citizens of Indian Origin & their requirements for GPA as requested by bank(India Based) for a Home Loan(Purchase of a Flat)

Hi @Kalyan_P

Complete process for power of attorney attestation with Indian embassy is given here.

Original passport is required to be sent.

The safer option is to visit embassy in person if you don’t want to give passport.
