HYDERABAD: J Pearllinda Vanburen, the 47-yearold American citizen, who had been embroiled in the passport controversy at the Regional Passport Office here a month ago over nonissuance of passport to her surrogate child, has finally flown back to the US without her baby. Speaking on behalf of Vanburen, HR manager of Rama’s Fertility Clinic, PSN Prasad confirmed that the lady had flown back to her home country after officials here failed to provide her baby with the requisite travel documents. “From the USA, she will travel to Jamaica, the home country of her husband where she is expected to be issued a passport for her baby,” he said.

With the Jamaican passport in hand, the Indian government will then issue an exit passport for her child to leave India. But Vanburen will have to return to India once again to complete the formalities. Currently, the baby has been admitted in the children’s ward of the fertility clinic. “Vanburen had tried four times before finally conceiving the baby.

So we are taking care of the child for her till she returns.

We might even provide her with fee concessions as a friendly gesture to make up for the troubles she’s been through,” Prasad said.

Earlier last week, Vanburen had travelled to New Delhi to hold talks with American, Jamaican and Indian officials.

But unable to find a solution to her problem, her last option remained returning to the US and Jamaica to look for alternate travel options for her baby.

Her online account showed her as having reached the US this Monday.
