The initiation of this process depends on the applicant submitting a duly completed Passport Application, along with all the necessary documents. Subsequently, the case is forwarded to authorities in India for review. Upon verification and approval of the provided information, the passport is printed and sent to the Embassy for onward dispatch.

Applicants must exercise caution to ensure accurate information in the application form, the submission of all necessary documents (including photocopies where applicable), and the provision of appropriate colour photographs.
