The Embassy of India would like to inform that the passport issuing process has been streamlined. As a result the passports are being issued within 5 working days of the application over the past few weeks.
All passport renewal applications can be lodged up to One year before the expiry date of an Indian passport. In case the blank pages of a passport are about to exhaust, applications can be lodged if only Five blank pages are left in a passport without One year condition.
All Indian nationals are advised to apply for renewal of their passports well in advance.
In this connection, particular attention needs to be paid to the remaining validity of passports of minor children who normally have shorter validity of their passports.
