Passport Application Process in Bangalore
There is no need to visit any PSK location initially as you can apply online itself and also book an appointment online itself. Here is the step by step guide below.
Step 1: First of all you have to visit the official Passport India website www.passportindia.gov.in. With your email address and mobile number, you have to register & create your User ID & Password. Make sure you also check your mail for verification process.
Step 2: Next, login with your userid & password and look for options like “Apply for Fresh Passport” or “Reissue of Passport “ as per your need. You can also choose a regular process or tatkal application also to speed up the process.
Step 3: Next, you have to fill up the application form with all personal details. You have to be very careful as the form is having couple of sections and any mistake will make your life more difficult to correct them again.
Step 4: Next you have to choose the appointment date on which you have to visit the nearest PSK location to validate your application and complete the passport application process.
Step 5: Now you have to complete the payment online itself. On next step pay your passport application fee as per below rate and complete the application process. It will generate an Application Reference Number (ARN).
Step 6: Take a printout of this application document with the appointment date mentioned on it. Next, visit the PSK location with all mandatory documents with original and their xerox copies. Make sure you are carrying multiple copies. No need to worry about pictures as they will take your picture in PSK only after validating all the documents.
