  2. I am not able to apply online for passport in Bangalore. Has the link been removed in Bangalore RPO website? Please anybody update if u know…

  3. if we have applied for online for passport in chennai do we have to be present only in sastry bhavan passport office or any of the centres in chennai pl clarify.

  4. Sir,

    I am unable to register online for reissue of passport from Bangalore. lease guide me.


  5. Thanks for the information. I must disagree on the following point “You should be at your Regional Passport Office, 15 minutes before the appointed time and Proceed to your respective counter.” though.

    Appointment times are rarely adhered to. It is better to reach the office early (an hour or 90 minutes ahead) and wait rather than reach just 15 mins ahead at which point the line has already formed for much later appointments.

  6. In online registration, can I submit my application form at any date ignoring the date and time on the application form.

    • Why do you want to do that?

  7. I got mu passport from Ahmedabad in 1997 for 20 years and it expires in 2017. However, information handwritten in my passport is not very clear. There is also a spelling mistake in my name, as it appears on the passport. Otherwise, my Passport is in good condition.How can I rectify these?

    Pls. suggest.


  8. Hi,
    I got the appointment day 2 weeks from now but I need to get the passport urgently (travel is due this month end and I have other formalities to be completed after I get my passport).
    Is it possible to go before the appointment date and get the processing done?

  9. how could i apply for my passport via online application form?

  10. I am a resident of Ahmedabad (Gujarat)and we have a regional passport office here. But Ahmedabad does not appear in the on-line application form. Please help.
