I am so happy beyond belief right now! Thanks to some back pay from the military I am travelling to India Oct 25th and return to Canada 15th Nov. That means I will be there for Diwali!!! SOOOOOO very excited! Staying with a friend in New Delhi and they will drive me to Amritsar and Chandigarh, and even Taj Mahal. I can't wait to get tons of pics!!!! And most of all can't wait to see Harmandir Sahib... especially at Diwali!! I already tentatively booked flights (which are actually half filled already even this early in the year.... I want guaranteed window seat the whole way so I can sleep against the window and for the view of course) So I had to book now... Anyway I am filling out the online Visa application and I am stuck on one box in the application. It says 'citizenship / national id #' I am not sure what to put there. I assume that citizenship would be someone who immigrated to another country and got a citizenship card or PR card. But National ID? Would that be my military ID or social insurance #? (social insurance # you are never supposed to give out) It does say put NA if not applicable... I am just not sure if it is applicable to me or not. Can anyone who has gone there recently on a tourist visa shed any light on this?? Thanks! Also, there is a spot on the app asking if I have ever worked in security, military or police. Obviously since I am in the Canadian Navy, I had to put yes. It even asks rank and where I am posted. Why do they ask this?? Could I be denied the Visa since I am in the Canadian military?? Do they somehow look down on people who are in a foreign military or police force?
