Renewal of Indian Passport. Quick Guide.

First have the following ready.

Copy of your passport, GC, H1 papers SHOULD BE VALID as of applying for new passport. The renewal actually is a misnomer. They give you a new passport alright.

Fill up this form. You can actually type and print all details, infact do that.. if you want to write on the form, the space is just not enough in some places (depends on your handwriting though).

http://www.indiacgny.org/passportform.pdf

The fee is 40$.

The sooner you go there, the sooner you come out.

Give this form, 40$, Copy of passport+GC/VISA, and 4 passport size photos. No need to stick the photo. They do it for you. Also do not forget to put signatures in all the required places. 4 in all. 1 Just below the photo, other 3 at bottom of page 2. You can get passport size photo cheaper at counsellate (there is an automatic machine). However xerox copying is expensive there.

Once done, the clerk there will give you a receipt.

Plan for 2 day trip to NY. The passport will be given to you next day 4:30 to 5:15 PM.

Actually, Had I seen this form before, I would not have had any problem at all.. this form has clear cut instructions including the time they expect us to drop off the form. It also gives details of fees and facilities available in the counsullate.

Un ka web master chewtiyaa hai.. the layout is not good. Else I guess my experience with the counsellate would have been a very pleasant one. I am happy I got counter 5. The girl at counter 6 was a total Khadoos..

You come inside them once every ten years so experience should be satisfying too ... no? It should be worth all the wait ... no?

I am happy I got counter 5. The girl at counter 6 was a total Khadoos..
Khadoos are more fun ... nice girls are dime a dozen.
