Renewal Passport

Renewal Passport

The two essential passport services after you have been issued a passport are passport renewal and passport re-issue. Passport renewal is the process in which the passport issued for a very short period like 1 to 5 year or the passport which is expired is renewed for ten years. Passport re-issuance is the service where a completely new passport is requested due to various reasons. A passport re-issuance is usually asked in cases like lost/damaged passport, stolen passport, or change or modification in the personal details you have filled on your Indian Passport. The fundamental difference between the passport renewal and re-issuance lies in the essence that merely the date of your passport is changed whereas, in the case of re-issuance, a completely new copy of a passport is provided to the person who requests for re-issuance.The application for renewal or re-issuance of a passport could either be applied online or at your nearest Passport SevaKendra.
