Online Procedure To Apply For Newborn/Minor Passport In INDIA

Getting passport for newly born is very easy and straight forward, you need not to engage with any agent or middleman to get this done.

Below are the points which needs to be considered before starting the process for newborn/minor’s passport, 

  1. If either parent holds a valid passport with spouse name endorsed, passport will be issued to the minor without any police verification
  2. Original passport of parent(s) should be presented for the verification of particulars
