Your passport is the ticket to the world. If you’ve got an expired passport or do not have a passport, but the wanderlust is something you can’t suppress for long, here’s some great news for you. There’s nobody who can say no to an international vacation. What’s better than being in an absolutely new place, with new people and exploring food and culture?
Gather Information and Fill Details
first, gather your aadhaar card, photos and other required documents. Fill in all the details in the form carefully because the wrong information might lead you to start the process all over again. You can save the details and come back later but its best if you finish entering family details, personal information- all at once.
Make the payment and get an appointment
Once you’re done filling forms, you can pay the fees and get an appointment schedule which will be within three days of the date of application. You can pay via credit or debit cards or net banking.
Attend appointment with original documents
Most of the processing can be done and your identity verified through your aadhar card but the other few documents that are asked for must be original. Get Xerox copies and originals and make sure you go attend the appointment. Once this is done, give it a week’s time and your passport will be delivered home. You will be told which police station is responsible to do your verification and you can do that before you travel abroad.
So, no more taking rounds at the passport office. No delays. Just plan your international trip in peace and if somebody gifted you flight tickets but your passport has expire, there’s nothing to worry either ways. 3 days of application work, 7 days of processing and delivery and you’re good to go.
