Public Advisory for Passport Service

***

Indian citizens living in India and abroad are advised to apply for urgent re-issuance of their passports in the following cases:-

(i) HANDWRITTEN PASSPORTS

Indian citizens residing in India and abroad and holding non-Machine Readable Passports (MRPs) passports with validity beyond the 24th November, 2015 are advised to apply for re-issue of their passports  in order to avoid any inconvenience in obtaining valid visa or international travel.

(ii) PASSPORTS VALID FOR LESS THAN SIX MONTHS

Many international travellers may not realise that having an unexpired passport is sometimes not enough to obtain Visas or to enter certain foreign countries. Indian citizens travelling on Passports which may expire in less than six months should renew their passports before any upcoming international travel. It is especially important to check the passports needs of any minor who may be accompanying their parents as passports for minors have a shorter validity period (5 years) than passports for adults (10 years). The universal practice in vogue now is; "Once your passport crosses the nine-year mark, it is time to get new passport".

(iii) EXHAUSTION OF VISA PAGES

Some countries do not accept passports which may have fewer than two pages remaining. Please check your passport to ensure that you have enough visa pages. There is no provision of additional booklets/pages and you will be required to apply reissuance of passport following standard procedures. Frequent travellers may opt for Jumbo Passport containing 64 pages.

(iv) Grievance Redressal Mechanism for Passport Services

Under the Passport Seva Project (PSP), the Ministry has put in place a citizen-friendly, strengthened Grievance Redressal System to ensure quick redressal of public grievances.
