I've a question:
After getting the ARN is it necessary to book a slot online or can I just walk-in to the PSK? I've read a few pages of this thread but getting conflicting info on whether we need to book a slot online before going to PSK or just walk in with ARN?
thanks,

You would need to book a slot for the appointment to visit the PSK. The walk-in is allowed for students and other emergency cases.

Hi.
I just appeared for the interview on 28/9/12. The slot was taken online.

My slot was 1100-1115. Entered the PSK at 1035 and walked out at 1130. 55 minutes was all it took me to submit my application for renewal. This scheduling seems to be better than walk in. You just have to make sure that all papers are in order.

Everything was so organised that I just cant stop myself from praising it.

Guys,
I had asked a question sometime back related to getting my Spouse's address changed in her passport. Post marriage, she does not have any document which has the current address! All we have is our Marriage Certificate and my passport (which has the current address). What do we need to in this case?

Marriage certificate is useful for spouse name addition only.

Does she work? She can get a letter from company for address proof.

Or if she has post paid bill that would do as well.

Your passport will be more than sufficient as a documentary proof for change of address in her passport.

Nix, it would be valid only if the spouse name is endorsed in the passport.

So, to get the address changed in my wife's passport, i need to get my name added in her passport and then apply for address change? Or can both - Adding Spouse's name and address changed be done together/at once?

^^ Yes, you can make multiple changes at the same time. In fact it is preferable since a new booklet will be issued for every change.

A query on similar lines -

Is it mandatory to add your spouse's name on your passport?
Eg: Is it necessary, that I add my wife's name on my passport?

From Passport FAQ:
Quote:
Question 8. I got my passport 2 years ago. I got married recently. Should I include my spouse’s name in my passport? If so, what is the procedure?
Ans. It is better to include your spouse’s name in your passport. For this, please file up Form No.II(EAP-II) form and submit it along with marriage certificate, photocopy of spouse’s passport (if she has one) and proof of stay (if the present address is different from the one in the passport). Note : The procedure is the same if one wants to include her husband’s name in the passport.
So yes, it's preferable, but not mandatory.

It is not mandatory, but it would be useful when your wife needs to apply for a passport as your passport could be used as a valid proof of address.

This may not be the appropriate place for posting this query. But does one have to staple all the old passports to the current one while travelling abroad?

I used to carry my previous passport stapled to the current one, but now there is one more! Kind of bulky to carry 3 passports together. Same is the case with my daughter.

Staple old passports? Why? I am on my 4th passport. You need to carry only your current passport. The only reason to carry old passport is if you have a valid visa in the older passport.

For example, I got my new passport this year. But my 10 year US visa is in the old passport. So I need to carry the old passport if I am visiting US. And there is no need to staple.

Phew, what a releif! I was told that one needs to carry the old ones too, especially to the US. I've made 3 visits to the US so far, and the immigrationn officer did give a curious glance at the older one stapled to the current one.

But in my case (as with others in my family), the old passport is completely blank. Looks like I was misinformed.

Thanks Samurai.

Yesterday when I checked, the appointment slot was saying "Check Oct 25th at 2.00PM". Today (25th) I have been checking all along the day and it shows "Maximum number of appointments exceeded for the day". I am not sure why the same message appeared before 2.00PM and after 2.00PM as well. What should I do now? I just keep checking for the available slots?
