Important Notice

All Indian citizens residing in India and abroad and holding handwritten passports as well as 20-year passports with validity beyond the 24th November 2015, should, therefore, apply for re-issue of passports and obtain MRP passports well before the deadline.

General Information

Your passport is a valuable document. It should always be kept either in your own custody or in the custody of a person duly authorized by you. If lost, or destroyed, the fact and circumstances should be immediately reported to the nearest Indian Mission/Post and the local police. Your passport must not be altered or mutilated in anyway nor any endorsement made on it by any person other than a duly authorized official of the Government of India. The maximum life of an Indian Passport is ten (10) years from the date of issue. Please ensure that you obtain a fresh passport within one year before its expiry, as issue of new passport, after expiry of previous passport, could take a number of weeks. Please keep a photocopy of your passport in a safe place. In the event of loss or damage of the original passport, its photocopy helps the applicant in providing important passport details, which are necessary to process the application for duplicate passport. Without these details, issuance of duplicate passport may be delayed. It is an offence under the Passport Act 1967 to give false information in the application. Passport facilities can be denied on grounds of suppression of factual information, submission of false particulars, willful damage of passport and for making unauthorized changes in the passports. Your passport can be impounded or revoked by the Government of India under the provisions of the Passport Act 1967 in which event you will have to surrender the passport to the nearest Indian Passport Issuing Authority. Application forms should be filled in fully, legibly (in capital letters) and accurately and submitted with the passport. Misrepresentation of facts may result in denial of passport/consular services. Applications received with incomplete details will remain unprocessed. Every child should have a separate passport. If a holder of an Indian Passport acquires nationality of another country, he/she must immediately surrender his/her Indian Passport forthwith to the nearest Indian Mission/Post abroad. Unauthorized possession of an Indian Passport shall constitute an offence punishable under the Indian Passports Act, 1967.

On-line Passport Applications

In accordance with the guidelines of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the Government of India has commenced the issue of Machine Readable Passports. These passports are issued at a central issuing office in India. Applicants are required to register their applications using the online registration form at http://passport.gov.in/nri/ and then to submit their registration printout with application and other documents to the Embassy. Since the information is electronically communicated to India, processed there and the final printed passport is couriered back to Bucharest, the entire process could take about 30 days or more depending on backlog. Applicants are therefore advised to take this into account and apply well in advance for their passports.

How to apply

All applications can be made by clicking on the link on-line registration form - under Passport Related Services.
After filling in the form fully and accurately, applicants should upload their passport size photographs as per
guidelines given below’
click 'Save & Print'. You are then asked to confirm the appointment for presenting the form at the Embassy. Please note that this is not relevant for Embassy of India, Bucharest as no prior appointment is required to visit the Embassy. You may simply click "Confirm the Appointment" and proceed further to take a printout of the full form and then to fill in the remaining columns.

The completed forms can then be brought to the Embassy counter on any working day between 0930 hrs and 1200 hrs, along with the fees and documents/ information listed below.
