About Us Re-issue of Passports for applicants above 18 years of age

  • It is informed that the consular appointments stand cancelled until further notice. Applications need to be sent by post as visitors are strictly not allowed in Embassy premises.
  • Presently there is a significant delay in the processing of cases, given the situation. It is hard to predict a timeline for getting new passports as the passports are printed in India.
  • Please don't enclose your current original passport while you post the application to us. You don't have to enclose the return envelope as well. We shall send an email with instructions on collection once the new passport is ready.
