Applying Passport Online :

The process for applying new passport online is very simple.
Please follow the below steps to apply passport online. I feel this information may useful to the people who are lack of knowledge on applying passport online.

Steps:

Open internet explorer and type the below website detail and click enter.

As a first time user, everybody who is applying for passport online needs to register their details with the site mentioned above and create a User ID. (Click on “Register” link under the Online Application Filling Section on Home Page)
Once you completed the registration process, login to passport Seva portal with the User ID created above.
Then, Click Apply for Fresh Passport/Reissue of passport link.
Please keep your id proof documents like certificates, ration card and election ID card to enter your details.
Please enter the details very carefully, if you did any mistake there may be a delay in processing your passport.

Please fill the form and submit.
Then, click on “Manage Appointment” link on Application Home Page to schedule an appointment at a passport Seva Kendra (PSK).
Then click the “Print Application Receipt” link to print the application receipt containing Application Reference Number (ARN).

Visit the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) where appointment has been taken, along with original documents.
Only emergency/medical cases may visit PSK without appointment. Service will be provided at the discretion of PSK in-charge/Passport Officer. 

Minor applicants below 4 years of age need to carry a passport size photograph (with a white background) while visiting Passport Seva Kendra (PSK). Other applicants need not carry any photograph as photograph will be captured at the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK).

I am trying to book the passport slot from past one month for the psk - vijayawada. It is showing the message like "please try scheduling an appointment from 04/10/2012, 4:00 pm onwards"
every day I am trying to book the slot but its saying same message with next date. How can I book the slot if it shows same default message every day. God only can help me.

Ravi said...

You have to try exactly at 4 PM. If you try after 4 PM and if the available slots are completed, then the system will show the Next day @ 4 PM.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Due to lot of application, the slots were booked by with in 5 minutes of the booking time.
So, Try to book the slots on time.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Guys, make sure of carrying documents required when you are going to PSK.

If there are any discrepancies you have to return to home with your application and you have to go PSK day after that with required docs and complete the application submission.

can a person who lives in west godavari apply at vijayawada office

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

HI,
You can apply for your passport any one of the PSK available in andhra.

Only thing you need to do is you have choose your nearest one to submit your documents.

Now, It is not easy to submit the docs at PSK. You have to visit PSK atleast twice or thrice to submit the required documents if you failed to submit them at first attempt.

So, keet this in your mind and start applying your passport and make sure of docs required to apply.

Hope this is helpful to you.
All the best for your Passport.

i want to apply passport from karimnagar....but my permanent residence is at hyderabad....so will der b any problem.???

PLs help me

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

I dont think it's wise decision to apply passport from karimnagar where u r permanant is at hederabad.
You can fill any address in your passport application when filing it. But be sure to provide atleast 2 address proof for the mentioned address.
Police will go to the same address you mentioned in passport application to enquire about your self. if they would come to know that you are not staying in the mentioned address then there may be chances of cancel your application.

If you really have the proof of address in karimnagar and if you could manage police people then you can goahead to apply from karimnagar.

I hope this helps!!!!

Passport Appointment Booking said...

Every PSK there will be some schedule at what time the database will be open for passport appointment booking. E.g. for PSK Kolkata it is 3 PM every day. You cannot try before that. Otherwise you will get a message same in the screen. Now if try from 3 PM time and able to view the next screen, then you can see the available slots. Simply you can click on a slot and further proceed for booking.
But the thing is not so easy. As many people try at the same time, so the database responds to them only who has a high speed or 3G internet. For a general internet speed you might reach to that screen, but by the time you click and book a slot, some will finish the booking itself. So practically there is no such tricks to book online passport appointment. But we have couple of choices or alternatives to get an appointment. Let's check them and try to find out whether they are useful or not.
First thing you can do is to take high speed internet connection. If you don't have that or you cannot replace your existing one then find out among your friends. It will be a just 5 min task.
Always keep trying to log in before 5 min of actual time. Keep trying, although you will get the massage. Because everyone will do the same. If you are able to manage a slot, then in the next screen you have to fill up the captcha or verification letters. Don't be in hurry, fill it up very carefully. Remember if you miss a single word, then you will not get a chance to come back again. You have to try next day. FOR passport appointment booking

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi Punit,

I am not sure about your query, it's related to maharashtra state.

As I am not aware of this state much. Though, let me give you some suggestions about your query.

I could find the below pin number for your home town and I beleive that you are entering the below pin while filing the passport application.

Badlapur 421504

I have found your issue.

Please select THANE RURAL as your district while filling the present address to avoid your pincode issues.

I have created one test user and tried for myself and it works for me and i beleive it should work for you aswell.

Hope this helps to you!!

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi,

Its better to pay fees directly in PSK, rather than generating challans and paying the fees.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

If you really want to generate challans, then you can refer the detailed steps/process mentioned above.

hi i need small info,

My in-laws stay at allagadda-kurnool district, can they apply passport in hyderabad.
they dont have any address proof in hyderabad.
Kindly respond to me as soon as possible.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi,
You can submit passport application either Tirupathi or Hyderabad.

It is mandatory to provide atleast 2 addressproofs with the application.

if you are submitting your application in hyderbad it doesnt mean that you need to provide hyderabad addressproofs. you can submit your native place address proofs in hyd psk.

Hope this helps!!

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hello Ruhel,
In general in this case, PSK people sent back to you to get the documents required.

And they will give you some time slot to submit your application with required docs.

I guess, You no need to refill any new form in this case, but anyways check with them clearly again.

Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hello Prasad,

Online Payment will remain valid for one year from the first appointment date. The paid fee will be forfeited if applicants do not submit application at PSK within this period.

As you said your payment Status is displayed as Success, click the "Schedule Appointment" link, to schedule an appointment.

Select the Appointment Quota (i.e. Tatkaal Quota or Normal Quota (required only for Tatkaal ARN cases)),

For your second question,
Select the desired Passport Seva Kendra, and click the Book Appointment button. An appointment (if available) will be booked automatically for the selected Passport Seva Kendra.

For your third question,
Reschedule/Cancel an Appointment
Once an appointment at Passport Seva Kendra is confirmed, it can be rescheduled/ canceled only twice within a year of the first appointment date.

Hope it will helps!!

Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Hi jagadeesh,

Thank you soo much for your prompt response.

I have small doubt. Actually i have submitted my application through e-form (downloaded and filled and uploaded the generated xml form)for my passport reissue every thing is clear. but i have not uploaded any supporting documents actually whats the documents required to upload for reissue(with out any changes like address same & no need any additions) in passport website i came to know there is only old passport first and last 2 pages photocopies along with original passport is enough.

am i need to upload these passport first and last 2 scanned copies uploaded or if i show these documents at the time of appointment.

Please reply me ASAP.

Thanks In-advance

BR,
Prasad

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hello Prasad,

You can submit the docs through online or by hand as well.

In this case, you can submit them by hand and no more issues.

But, I will advise you to take the docs mentioned in website along with some other address proof and identity proof docs(at least 2) like Aadhar card and ration card etc.. make sure your docs address should match the address mentioned in your passport and your newly filled application.

we can’t really trust the information mentioned in website and we should act proactively for gather or having all required information.

Hope it will helps you!

Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Hi today had appointment in passport office but due to lack of proper address proof have to return back. I stay in a rented house n my owner stays in other city.they asked for noc,within how many days should it hv to b submitted.I hv opted for a reshedule.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Mr Rama,
It would be better if you can apply from vijayawada, now vja psk is accepting vizag region applications as well. you can find the docs list from passport website.

Mr Shuvra Roy,
does it your permanant address or temperoray,

It would be always better to provide your permanant address details as address proof and then you need to manage police enquiry for not to object on your present address.

If it is the case, you need to resubmit the application with your updated details and need to schedule it again with PSK for your application submission process.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hello Avinash,

You need to refill the application with the correct details. provide the information based on your certificates data. So that you will not be having any issues.

Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Sai,

Did you book the appointment with Vizag PSK? in this case you need to cancel your appointment with vizag psk and re take the appointment with Vijawada PSK.

I guess, they will accept the challan though it was taken for vizag PSK. please check with the passport customercare.

Thanks, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Madhav, Please call to Passport Customer care for your issue. it would be better if you can go to any PSK and find the information directly from them. Helpdesk support team would help you.

Hello jagadeesh pls help regarding this...
At present m residing in rr district from last one yr and since childhood we lived in Hyderabad area.. Though i have epic doc of present address n birth proof.. My problem is will there be any problem in police verification due to address change as my education done in Hyderabad n currently living in r r dist. .....?


Also can i apply for passport using epic card as address proof , id proof and college certificate as birth proof....? If not what are the docs i need besides these certificates.....

Kindly let me know d details pls......!

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi,
There are so many things that you need to address before you applying the passport.

Police verification will be done based on the proofs you are mentioning in passport application.

If you mentioned more than one address proof, EX: present and previous address are different, police ppl has to verify in both the locations.

similar to, your college if the address from your present address and college address are different again verfication will take in place for both the places.

you need to provide your college letter like study certificate or something else when you are filing your application with PSK.

It would be always better if you can provide single address when you are filing application.

Make sure it your previous and present address are same.

Even if your college address is different then you can tell them i am a daily commute to my college from my home.

Coming to your address proof, you need to provide atleast two proofs (Aadhar card and ration card)

Birth certificate, if you are born after 1986 you need to provide birth certificate as mandatory thing. otherwise you will be good with your 10th marklist.

Here are my suggestions,

if you still have any address in hyd then try to fill application with that details.

if you mentioned any of your graduation details then you need to submit study certificate or course completion certificate from your college,

Whatever the case, when police verification comes to you then, you need to manage them to get it through!!

Hope this helps!!

what is file number? jagadeesh. how to get file number after filling the application

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi,

File Number is nothing but Application Reference Number (ARN)

You can track the details using below,

Then, click on “Manage Appointment” link on Application Home Page to schedule an appointment at a passport Seva Kendra (PSK).
Then click the “Print Application Receipt” link to print the application receipt containing Application Reference Number (ARN).

Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Ritesh,

You can track your mails for your user id and password, and provide the correct details.

If you are unable to find your details, then register as a new user and proceed.

you no need to worry about the old one, as PSK will delete un used applications.

Regards,

Jagadeesh.

Hi Jagadeesh Bhogireddy,

I have already reschedule my appointment twice. Is it possible to reschedule it for the third time. I went to the PSK and one lady over there said that you can do it for the third time also. Go the site and receive the form. However I am not able to find receive option or what she meant by the receive. When I try to reschedule the appointment using the reschedule option it says that your maximum attempts have reached. Kindly suggest

Hi Jagadeesh,
I am living in Vijayawada. Appo
intment slots are full until one month at Vijayawada PSK. Can I submit the documents in any one of Hyderabad PSK centers. Because slots are available in Hyderabad PSK centers.

hello jagadish,

i am also from vijayawada.

i have a problem with my pin code and police station
i don't know what PSK is expecting me to enter rather than the correct ones.

my pin code is 520007.
it says this is wrong.
my police staion is penamuluru police staion.
it says this also wrong.

what to do?

thanks regards
arun.

Sai Kiran Peddi said...

Hai,
At User registration - Passport office, Vijayawada is not available as an option. What should I select? Hyderabad or Vishakapatnam?

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

sai kiran peddi,

please select Hyderabad, when user registration and you will get vijayawada option when you are taking appointment with PSK.

Cheers,Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi Arun,
I am not sure, what district you have selected and its bit logical to select the correct option. Select Viajawada as district and then you could find the kanuru or penamaluru police stations and select it.
Cheers,Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

suresh babu, sorry for the late reply, yes you can select hyd psk for your appointment.

but anyways it has to come to vja police station for verification and the rest of the process.

Cheers, Jagadeseh

Hi All,

Please mention your name when posting queries. It was difficult to me when addressing the queries when people post with anonymous name.

Thanks for your cooperation!!

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Mr Anonymous,

A valid present address proof is mandatory when applying the passport.
If you are having trouble with present address proof with your camp office, you can put your permanent address as your present address as well. and when police verification comes, tell them will do daily commute to camp office from home address. (you have manage the police) no other alternatives.

You can do notary with your present address too, but you need atleast two valid address proofs when applying for passport.

Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

sreenu paila,
you need to mention your place of birth and the country details as mandatory when you are applying passport.
Please mention the place of birth and country details when you born or based on your nationality.

Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Sudeep said...

Hey sir.. Just now after taking the print out of my online passport application I realized that i have wrongly mentioned my place of birth ... the appointment is scheduled for day after tomorrow.. Please suggest what could be done to avert any complications.. Thanks in advance

sivaram eluru said...

hi jagadeesh...........can i able to change the police station after submitting application and after scheduling appointment.......I am from krishna dt ,penuganchiprolu mandal .....and my mandal has policestation but while applying I submitted address of other mandal PS,which is also nearer to my home town.......can do that..........and also one more thing ...whether I'm eligible for scheduling appointment in HYD PSK's.....other than vijayawada PSK

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Sudeep,
If you are having DOB certificate with place of birth, then it should match with the application.
Sometimes, PSK officials may accept to edit the changes from their end.
Check with PSK Customer care for the same, otherwise you need to refill the new application and take the new appointment.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Sivaram,
You can schedule appointment in HYD PSK as well. But you need to go to Hyd to submit all the documents and all. it would be better if you can go to VJA PSK for all the reasons.

Coming to Police station, you said that the police station is near by your hometown, then go to the police station and find out the police who is doing verification of passports and settle the issue there itself.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Sivaram Eluru said...

thank you jagadeesh

Sivaram Eluru said...

hi jagadeesh..........whether i have to upload any supporting certificates in the passport website..is it necessary........and what are the certificates i should have during appointment......

deepthi said...

Hi,
My brother applied for passport . He finished submitting documents at Psk in ameerpet hyd. He is studying in chennai..
There was a problem he identified yesterday.

The agent wrote wrongly about nearest police station and pincode.. it became entirely out of chennai. What to do ?? Pls suggest..

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Mr Sivaram Eluru,
It is not necessary to upload the docs. you can carry all the documents at the time of appointment without fail.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Deepthi,
If you know the details of the Police station and pin code,which he was mentioned in application, then ask your brother to go directly to that police station to inquire the person responsible for passport clearance and try to make a deal..and i believe this time police do inquire two times one is in your native and other is at your brother staying area.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Anonymous1, If you are not sure of making online payments dont pay online, however you can always pay the amount directly when you went to PSK.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Anonymous2, Hello I guess you have wrongly selected/filled the form while registration.
please register your self with proper detials, you will get all the information.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Anonymous3, please fill the new application for normal mode and apply for the passport.
you cant use the application which was filed for tatkal mode.

hey guys please help me .while paying fee through debit card it is saying that the password is wrong.but i use the same four digit password to debit money from ATM.please help me what to do

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hello, I have suggested people several times to make the payment at PSK directly, rather than making online payments unless you are well versed with online payments.

Coming to your issue, please provide the clear information to help you, like what kind of password it is asking and the bank account your using (ICICI) or else..
If it is asking you provde the security code, that would be your 3 digit code on backside of your debit card.
or you can always give a call to customer care to get the assistance.
Thanks, Jagadeesh.

hi, I paid the money through my credit card online.I already rescheduled my appointment thrice. they said to try after a year. but its also written in the site that the money will be forfeited if its not done under one year. please help me

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Hi, Why are they asking you to schedule the appointment after one year??
In General, Online payment transactions are valid up to one year. So you can utilize your payment within one year from the date you have done the payment.
Please get the more clarifications from the PSK and act accordingly.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Manjot,
You can directly go to PSK at the time of appointment and request the PSK officer to modify your details for you.They will be able to do it.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

manjot kaur said...

actually i asked somebosy to fill the form and they mixed my detaols with somebody else and in occupation type they mentioned government n under an organization called jawahar navodya vidyala....but i m not working under such organization. will the officers b able to change it.they also mentioned my bith district as faridkot..which is wrong. and thank you so much for your reply.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Manjot, If there are some minor kind of mistakes then PSK officers are willing to help you. But in this case, it seems you have more modifications to correct it. However, you can go to PSK and check with PSK officer to modify it, is he refused to do so you have to refill the new application and check for the next appointment date with PSK officer.

manjot kaur said...

so in this case of filling new application...i will again have to pay the fee...

3.What is the difference between Re-Schedule appointment and Cancel appointment..?
Frnds plz help me...it is very important and urgent for me..
Thanks in advance..!!!!

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Manjot, Why to pay the fee again, anyways the guy who filled your application filled with wrong details and you can ask them to refill it with proper details.
And the best thing, try to fill it by yourself in online and it is very easy too. please follow the above information for how to register and scheduling appointment with PSK.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Pasha, You need to cancel your present appointment to change the location and schedule it for HYD. Rescheduling means you can able to change the appointment dates without changing the location.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

If you cannot properly check the Pincodes and Districts, why keep a check like that?!

2.If I cancel the appointment will I need to pay extra money for it..?

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Pasha, canceling of your appointment means you are cancelling your present appointment with the PSK and you have to schedule it again based on your availability.

You do not need to pay any amount to canceling/scheduling or rescheduling the appointments.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Thats a good question, people who developed this application might not have received the requirement properly to code properly!! Hence these kinds of issues.

Preeti Gupta said...

HI Jagadeesh
I have applied for Tatkal Passport online. As per my City Pincode its showing only one PSK i.e. Bareilly. is it possible to change it to Ghaziabad instead of Bareilly?

I need to ask one more question that
Do I need to get Clearance/Declaration Letter from SHO/DM or someone else holding authorized post before going PSK For Tatkal passport?
If YES, Then please tell me those authorized post names who can provide clearance letter

Please reply asap

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Preeti,
When registering your user account with PSK you need to opt for Ghaziabad.
And then before making appointment, you need to select the Ghaziabad PSK from the available options.
For TATKAL Passport you need to have the clearance certification form the police department that you need to contact your District Commissioner of Police (DCP) office.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.

what are the documents carried to the passport seve kendra? can anyone tell me?

Simplicity said...

hello jagadeesh sir,
I have applied for the passport and went to PSK at my scheduled timings. I cleared A & B stages successfully but in C step I told the officer that I’ve given my final semester exams & I also told him that I stayed near my college at a flat for 2-3 months to study. My permanent address is 45km from my college. I just stayed near my college to focus on studies with a friend.
Now, I have been charged with 500Rs. For not disclosing my temporary stay and PSK officer told me that police verification will also be done at place near my college where I stayed for 2 months. And sir I absolutely I have nobody there who could verify my stay because owner stays abroad and I had no interaction with neighbors and my friend is no more staying there.
Sir should I apply for a fresh passport and hide my stay of two months and tell them that I commutated from home everyday? Than What will happen to my previous application? And should I lie about my btech too? Should I involve a broker/mediocre who claims to help in passport making?
Please help me sir,
Nishnat
Waiting for your valuable reply sir.

Jagadeesh Bhogireddy said...

Nishnat, Sorry for the late reply. You have told that you have been charged 500rs from whome? Did you gave 500rs to PSK officer? In this case, He might have not updated your temporary stay information in the application. You just need to manage police verification and do not disclose that you stayed at college and all, tell him that i have daily commuter to college and as usual you have to give some money to manage this and close it. You no need to worry much about this and manage that police guy that will solves your issue.
Cheers, Jagadeesh.
