The endorsement of spouse name in passport doesn't take much time, I got it done less than 2 weeks. So it is better to get it done. And when adding, add the full name (not just given name) as in spouse's passport.

Even in India, endorsement of spouse in passport is a requirement to apply for kids' passport. So once done, it will be handy down the line.

Depending on whether you are interested and subject to your better half agreeing, its better to get the name change done too before going for long term visas or before you have kids.

Each consulate has different requirements (and different levels of bureaucracy ) you'd know it only after you submit the package. Its better to do all procedures proactively than reactive after their feedback.

So you mean to say that adding name in the passport is required only if we need passport for Kids otherwise Marriage certificate would suffice.

It comes in handy as an ID proof if your wife changes her maiden name to take your surname when she marries you.

So doing it right after marriage is a good idea.

Like I said, for India yes. We got the endorsement (on my wife's passport) done only after my daughter was born.

But when you are applying for dependent visa, all these are scrutinized. So if you are applying for dependent, its better to get it done.

Default Re: Passport Renewal Procedure

i need a urgent suggestion/ advise here.

Applied for passport renewal ( pune) on 5th sept at the PSK, pune, will be my 3rd passport. Since my last passport was issued from London , this renewa one was sent for mandatory pre police address adverification since there was an address change.

on 5th sep itself, got a sms that , it was sent to 'police commssioner' office and PVR report will take max 3 weeks.

next 3-4 weeks, no calls from police , status unchanged at passport portal. with lot of difficulties, called up the passport cell of CP, pune. then immediately , it was sent to my local police station and status in passport portal changed accordingly...that was 5th oct, 2014 status was [request for POLICE VERIFICATION INITIATED IN LOCAL POLICE STATION AND CLEAR PVR AWAITED' ]


after that, again no calls from local PS, so i contacted them and finally with 4-5 visits to the PS, completed all formalities :-) on 6th nov. the local PS told that, its complete now and PVR will be updated by commissioners office in passport portal.

waited and waited, spoke to CP office, local PS, but status is still same as ' request for POLICE VERIFICATION INITIATED IN LOCAL POLICE STATION AND CLEAR PVR AWAITED'
even today 20 th nov,that means same status from 5th oct till 20th nov. They are saying , they had sent a CLEAR PVR report for my case , and i need to check with passport cell.

i am in a fix now, are they taking me for a ride?
Does this police verification process take so much time ?
what i should do now to get it processed further and get passport issued ?
who is expected to change status in passport portal for police verification completion cases , police cell or passport folks ?

pls suggest asap.

Go to the passport office and check with the RPO there. Take a letter from the police that says they issued a clear PV

I am not aware about New Delhi but the passport status was changed to dispatched on the fourth day after submitting in Bangalore. I had applied for fresh passport for my son. I collected it from post office only three days later from post office as we were not available in house when speed post arrived.

Rant alert : Experience of Passport Reissue in PSK Pune
-------------------------------------------------------------------
My passport is valid for 4 more years but had to apply for reissue due to "exhaustion of pages". I have couple of travels planned so had to apply in Tatkaal.
Visited PSK website and filled out the application and booked appointment for Nov 21st.
Tatkaal appointments for Pune only start at 12:00 noon. You have to login at 12:00 noon and get appointment. Even if you login 10 minutes past 12 all appointment will be booked. If you book in "Normal" category then the appointments are available after 40 days since PSK Pune caters to other cities in Maharashtra as well.
There was no other change in my passport so I checked the "Document advisor" section by selecting correct options and found out only "self attested" photo copy of my passport is needed. There is no mention of Annexure F and I needed.
Visited the PSK office situated in Mundhwa. Thankfully there is lot of paid parking available. Showed the appointment letter to security guard outside the building and entered the building. After a security check I was asked to stand in line of Tatkaal to take token. My number came after 15 minutes and the person checked my documents and asked me to go to window C5 for further verification of documents.
Again waited for 20 minutes for my turn. The old lady was typical govt employee very mean and rejected my application saying bring annexure F & I.
I told her that website doesn't say I need it. I also argued with her that why on earth my moral character has to be certified for just "exhaustion of pages" in valid passport. She plainly said website is wrong and rescheduled my appointment to Nov 25.
I had no choice but to carry myself out of the office with heavy heart. My couple of hours had gone down the drain due to incomplete website information. I had taken half day leave which was also wasted.

Went home did some homework on annexure F & I.
Found out that annexure I is very easy just a affidavit from public notary. Did this in non judicial stamp paper of Rs. 100.
Annexure F is different animal altogether. One needs to get this from a high ranking government official or major and above in army. Thankfully my brother in law came to my rescue as he has a friend who is Lt. Col and he helped me get the annexure "F". However this process was also a 4 hour process. Had to go to Dighi camp and get it.
On the bright side the Lt. col was very jovial and good person.

So armed with both the annexures I reached the office one more time on Nov 25th at 12:45 pm. My appointment was at 1:00 pm
Went through the same drill. Had to wait in Tatkaal line for 30 minutes. This time he took my annexures and asked me to wait in waiting area. I was told they find some previous file of mine from their archives and then only they will process my tatkaal application. Again the wait started. This time it was for 2 hours. This long wait was partially due to their lunch break which is from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm.
The only good thing about the wait was the place is quiet comfortable with central AC and nice sitting benches. Restroom and eating stall is available.
Then a gentlemen came out and called my name and said verification with my previous file is done and asked me to take token. So again I had to go back to "token" line to get the token. Once I got the token I was asked to look in screen for my number. One has to go through A, B, C windows to get the complete process done.
Thankfully my number for A window came in 5 minutes and the young lady at the window helped me through the application process. Took my photograph, fingerprints, scanned all my documents and Tatkaal fee. Gave receipt and asked me to wait again for my turn in window B.
Again the same anxiety of looking at the screen for my token number. Now at this time the waiting area was completely full and there was no place even to stand. This was rather uncomfortable and after about 20 minutes my number was called in window B.
The young chap again checked and verified my documents and asked me to wait for turn in window C where my current passport will be canceled.
The longest wait for me was for this process. It took again about 1.5 hours for my number to be called. This time it was again old lady who verified my documents and found out I had not signed annexure I. She started cursing the young lady at window A and young chap at window B for not noticing this error. She asked me to sign the document and again asked me to go through the entire process of window A, B, C
Again I went to window A to rescan the annexure I, verify in window B and back to window C.
This time everything was right and she put a canceled stamp on my current passport. After that I had to submit the token number at exit counter and get acknowledgment.

Thankfully that was the end of the ordeal which again costed me 6 hours including commute time from my home.

So just for "exhaustion of pages" I lost total of 2 working days in completing the whole process.

Rant end

Now the wait has started to receive the passport.

If your permanent address is chennai and you expect to return there in a year or two don't change the passport address. Just travel to chennai and apply there. Spouse name is an addition in your passport for which you simply submit a copy of your marriage certificate etc.

Follow the wizard available at the below link and answer all the questions. You will get the information that you need regarding documentation, affidavits etc etc.
