Cox & Kings Global Services Pvt. Ltd (CKGS) now requires all Indian employment visa applicants in the United States to include a signed checklist and declaration form with their applications. As we reported in May 2014, CKGS is India’s visa application service provider in the United States. In addition to required information and documents, the checklist sets out the different steps of the visa application. By signing the declaration, the visa applicant agrees to comply with the terms of the visa and promises not to seek an extension or change of status after arriving in India.
To avoid delays and rejections, employers should take care to ensure that the signed checklist and declaration forms are included with all Indian employment visa applications. The checklist and declaration forms are available at the CKGS website. Failure to include the checklist and declaration forms when filing a case will result in a rejection and processing delay.
