Renew Indian Passport

If you’re an Indian passport holder (i.e. an Indian citizen), your passport may be expiring soon. It’s crucial you keep a valid passport, as you can’t travel on any international flight without a valid passport. Passport renewals are usually in 10 year intervals (you’ll get a 10 year extension). However, if you’re running out of pages in your passport, you will need to go through the renewal process to get a new passport book.

When you renew your passport, you will be given your old passport book back. Keep this! If you have valid visas in your passport, you can still use those (you’ll need to travel with both passports). And the stamps are important information for when you are applying for visas e.g. the US visa application process asks for all your previous entries to the US.

The process can largely be done online. You can ask for a passport reissue India online through the website. After that, submit your documents and you’re set!
