1. Proof of Age:
When applying for a passport re-issuance, applicants must provide proof of their age. This could be an original or attested photocopy of an official document like a birth certificate, school certificate, driver's license, etc., that confirms the date of birth of the applicant and is issued by a government body.
2. Residential Address Proof:
Applicants must provide copies of a valid residential address proof that confirms their current place of residence. This could include documents like an Aadhaar card, electricity bill, rental agreement, etc., that are issued by a government body.
3. Identity Proof:
Identity proofs are used to verify the identity of the applicant and could be in the form of any official document such as a Voter ID card, PAN card, Driving License, etc., that confirms the name and other details of the individual applying for passport re-issuance.
4. 2 Passport-Sized Photographs of the Applicant:
Photographs need to be taken as per specifications stated by the Indian Government before submitting an application. The passport-sized photographs should be recent and without any kind of tampering or editing.
5. Attested Photocopies of the First and Last Pages of Your Existing Passport Booklet:
Applicants need to submit attested photocopies of both the cover page and the last page of their existing passport booklets in order to request a re-issuance. This is done to ensure that they have a valid document and are not creating a false identity for themselves.
6. Original Existing Booklet:
The original existing booklet needs to be submitted along with the application so that it can be verified by government officials before processing the request for re-issuance.
7. Appointment Application Receipt or the Final Page of the Online Application Page:
The applicant must provide an appointment application receipt or the final page of their online application page in order to prove that they have completed all the necessary steps for applying for a passport re-issuance. This serves as proof that they are indeed eligible to receive a new passport.
