Can this happen in installments? I too am stuck for a Tatkaal passport and it would be wonderful to read your experiences before I jump into the paperwork and find that it's all incorrect!

I am in urgent need of renewing my passport and tatkaal is the only option I have. But I have my address changed in the last 2 years, so it would be a new passport altogether. I do not know the notary, etc involved also I do not know anyone personally for the verification certificate.

kalpesh,
Refer the passport website. They pretty much have every detail you need. Though not as nicely worded as an yeti blog.

My friend submitted the same last week and the receipt shows a 12 digit file number and when we went to track the same online, its asking for a 6 digit file number. Wonder what we are missing ? Any help please ?

Dear BHPians,

Need below help from you guys;

I am a native of Andhra Pradesh working in Bangalore for last 7 years. My Passport which is from Andhra Pradesh has expired recently. Didnt check it for expiry earlier .

Now I need to renew it and the questions I have are;

1) Since it is Andhra Passport, it has to be renewed in Andhra Pradesh? Hope this stands true?

About a year and a half back, I got married in Bangalore and wifey is from Chikmagalur and she already has a passport which has her Chickmagalur address issued to her prior to marriage.

2) My main query is that I have to get the passport re-issued and also have both the passports (me & wifey) endorsed that we are married. Marriage certificate is from Bangalore. However, I want the Passports to carry the address of my native place in Andhra Pradesh as that is the place where I plan to settle after few years of working.

Suggest on the formalities involved.

Regarding 1, I do not think it necessary that the passport be renewed from Andhra, if you can show address proof for the current place that you are living in.(if you have been living at different places in past 2 years, you will need to furnish all addresses and get police verification done at all places).

To get the marriage endorsed, you just need to provide the marriage certificate copy along with the duly filled form when you apply for renewal. It does not matter where the marriage took place.

Ok, read the last line. If you want the passport to carry the AP address, renewal will have to be done there. You could also submit your wife's passport there for adding spousal information and get address changed in her's too.

Thanks Kuttappan for the prompt revert.

However, pls. let me know the following;

I am OK to apply for renewal of Passport from my current address where I have been staying for more than 3 years in Bangalore. Have Gas Connection Bill, Voter ID card ( Me & Wifey) as address proof of my current address and have Pubilc Sector bank accounts as well (SBM) in my name and wifey/s name with the same current address details.

1) Will these documents be sufficient for applying for a passport renewal of mine?

2) Considering that Point number 1 is OK, Should I first apply for my Passport renewal along with copy of marriage certificate so that wifeys name is included in my passport and then submit wifey's passport (2 year old) with marriage certificate to endorse her changed surname & new address in her passport or should I do it one after the other.

Pls. let me know.

You will have to apply in the place you are residing in. So guess AP is ruled out for the moment.

There is no such thing as 'renewal' now a days. The process, and documentation is the same as that of a new passport - including police verification (which is why you need to be residing there).

Secondly I think the Voters ID is okay - according to their website Instructions-Documents to be attached

Lastly you can also submit your wife's passport alongside with the marriage certificate for incorporation of spouse name. This is independent of your renewal. Please remember that both your names should be endorsed on each others passport as a precursor to applying for your children's passports. (this is what we were told when we enquired)

Just got my passport renewed from Bangalore ,previous passport was issued at Kolkata .
I just had to submit address proof of Bangalore and marriage certificate to have my wife's name endorsed in the renewed passport .
Police verification was also done in Bangalore
I guess you can have your passport renewed at AP .But now the rule says the applicant has to be present while submitting the form.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies.

I will go-ahead and apply in Bangalore as suggested.

Would you suggest applying in BangaloreOne Centres or at the Regional Passport office in Koramangala? I dont want to go through a Agent and want to do it myself.

Pls. suggest as to which one will be more convenient and less time consuming because I have to do it myself and looking for a convenient way as I wont be able to take out much time from work in weekdays.

Default Passport Woes: Team-Bhpians please help :-(

My sister's passport expires in less than 6 months. She is 17 years of age, and turns 18 in October this year, hence she is still a minor.
Now, we, as a family plan to go on a trip on the 1st of June, preferably out of India.
The rule now is that your passport must be valid for atleast 6 months before you embark on a trip.
I intend to get this renewed at its earliest and can start the procedure tomorrow.
But after speaking to a lot of passport agents, I have gathered that the minimum amount of time it will take for renewal will be a month. The trip will not fall into place then. Also, after getting the passport, the Visas have to be applied for. I think Switzerland. Then the tour has to be booked. Please help!
Someone please suggest me what to do.
Anyone had a problem like this? We MUST make this trip in the first week of June, since I begin college subsequently.
WHAT is the procedure now?

i saw this. but its not easy. police and cid clearance required for my sister since she is a minor and holds a 5 year validity passport. this link is for people who have a 10 year validity passport.
sad, everything in this country works with greasing of palms. if they didnt delay, they wouldnt get bribes. we really have our selves to blame for this state of affairs.
