Renewal of Passport

Upon expiry of validity, a passport should be renewed by the applicant. It can be renewed upto 10 years from the date of its issuance. To renew a passport, the applicant must submit the following:

  1. 02 Completed Passport Application Form.

  2. 03 passport size photographs

  3. Passport

  4. Prescribed Fees US$100.00

Please note the following:

  • Calculation of years: The number of years (for renewal) is calculated from the date of expiry of the passport. Any fraction of a year is deemed as a full year in calculating fees. Please see the Prescribed Fees for details.

  • Maximum validity: An existing passoprt can be renewed up to 10 years from the date of issuance.

  • What happens after completion of 10 years?: If the passport has completed 10 years of validity, application should be made for issuance of a new passport booklet. The new passport will be issued for a period upto 5 years from the date of expiry of the existing (old) passport. Then both the passports will be stapled togather and returned to the applicant. Please see Passport Information for details on application for a new passport.

  • What happens if the passport has been lying without renewal for a long time?: If the passport has not been renwed for a long time (suppose 7-8 years or more), then it has to be renewed to the present date (the date of application) even if the total period exceeds 10 years (from the date of first issuance). Then a new passport will be issued. Both the old and new passport would then be stapled togather and returned to the applicant. In such cases the applicant has to submit two applications: a) application for renewal of the number of years elapsed since date of expiry; b) application for issuance of a fresh passport. The amount payable for these two services need to be submitted seperately along with each form.

  • Mail in Service: Applications for renewal of passports may be RECEIVED and DELIVERED by mail.
