Passport Services

The Government of India has now introduced Machine Readable Passports (MRP) which can only be applied for online. Indian passport holders resident in Victoria and Tasmania are now required to register online using the link provided in this website or in the website of the Indian Passport and Visa Service Centre. Once you have registered online through the website, the details are sent to India, the passport is printed there at a centralised facility and the completed passport is sent back to us to be dispatched to the applicant.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROCESS WILL TAKE AT LEAST TWO MONTHS TO BE COMPLETED. IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY SITUATION AND NEED A PASSPORT URGENTLY, WE WILL ISSUE YOU A HANDWRITTEN PASSPORT WITH LIMITED VALIDITY, AND YOU WILL HAVE TO REAPPLY LATER FOR A REGULAR PRINTED PASSPORT.

All passports are issued with a validity of ten years. You should apply for a new passport in the tenth year of its validity BEFORE the date of expiry or within six months from the date of expiry. If you wait more than six months after your passport has expired to apply for a new passport, the procedure will be much longer and an additional charge will be levied.

Please note that new passports have to be applied for even if your old passport is still valid but no longer has any blank pages, as we no longer issue additional booklets.

Please also note that if you wish to change any detail that appears on the laminated pages of your passport (such as your name and address) after the passport has been issued to you, you will have to apply for a new passport.

If you apply for a change of address, photo, name or any other detail at the same time that you apply for a new passport, you will not be charged separately for these changes.

It may take two months or more for a new passport to be issued. Please make sure you apply well in advance. Do not make firm travel bookings until you have your new passport in hand.

If a person is changing address, photo or name at the time of applying for passport after expiry of the given validity, only one fee is charged.

Please do not make firm travel bookings before receiving your passport.
