According to the rules of the Government of India one is required to apply for an Indian passport at the regional passport centre that comes under the jurisdiction of his residence.

One can always go online for a list of the entire Regional passport Offices in the country and find the one that comes under the jurisdiction of his residence. According to the Right to Information Act, 2005 all the particulars of the organization along with its functions and details are available from the website of the particular Regional Passport Office and one can apply both in person or online if he is an eligible citizen of the country.

Apply Online

The Government of India is providing its citizens with the facility of online application for passports and using an e-form it can be really done from home. Using the online passport service anybody can submit their application form but it is also required that he is a registered user of the Passport Seva Portal. Using the online services a number of passport related jobs can be done that includes

  • Applying for a new passport
  • Renewal of old and expired passports
  • Re-issuing of passports in case they are lost, stolen or damaged by some way or other
  • Changing the particulars
  • Also for requesting for a new one in case the passport booklet pages are exhausted

The e-form can be considered as one of the most convenient way of applying for a passport as anybody can download the application form to fill it offline and then upload it again to the Passport portal of the regional Indian passport offices. Though anybody can download the form but only the registered users can upload it after logging in to their user account.

Register on Passport Seva Portal

Registering on a passport seva portal is quite easy and completely free so anybody can take the advantage of the system. With the login id and password created during the registration it is possible to submit the passport application form online.
