This is a highly uncertain time in the world and the history of mankind.  COVID-19 is impacting societies all over the world without any boundaries of Countries or Social limits.  US Mission to India has done a wonderful job repatriating US citizens from India.  

But the job is not complete.

There still many US citizens and Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) stranded in India.  Nationwide lockdown is extended by two more weeks in India until 18th May 2020.

Due to extended lockdown in India, there are no commercial return flights available and travelers are stuck in India. These citizens and LPRs have their spouses, kids, and family in the USA who are currently ‘staying in the shelter’.  Such families are missing the loved ones in this critical time. Shopping basic supplies, groceries is difficult given the risk of getting sick outside and not having family members around to support.  If a family member or kids get sick; the entire family is at risk of facing devastating logistical challenges given they are by themselves.

On top of this, the work situation is in trouble as well.  Vacation days are exhausted and now stranded US Citizens & LPRs are staring at furlough & pink slips. This has put the utmost burden financially and emotionally. 

All these US Citizens and LPRs have registered in STEP and enrolled in the State Department's form  https://tinyurl.com/uscit-india 

Please arrange for additional flights at the earliest to repatriate stranded travelers from Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi.
