Hi, passport application was made in Maharashtra in October 2015 and police clearance was signed off by the senior officer at the police station in early December. However, application does appear to have moved to the next stage (i.e. no message sent of progress) or status updated on the passport website. I understood that police clearance in Maharashtra only took a week.

I would like to hear views on the following:

(1) what can the applicant do if where there does not appear to be any progress in processing passport after police clearance? and
(2) how long does it take to receive a passport in Maharashtra?

Thank you for reading my post and if you had similar experience, please share your news.

Hi,

I live in the US and recently traveled to India. During my onward journey, I was asked to meet the airport security in Seoul, South Korea. I came to know that my passport has been flagged as stolen. The airport authorities verified my identity and let me proceed to India. I had the same question during my visa interview in Chennai and I clarified with the Visa officers that I have no clue about my passport reported as stolen and that it was a false complaint. I was granted my visa on the same passport and I started by journey back to the US with transit in Singapore and Seoul. I did not face any issues while I traveled from Chennai -> Singapore and Singapore -> Seoul. However I was not allowed to board the connection flight from Seoul to San Francisco for the same issue I had earlier. I tried to explain that my passport was in my possession and I never reported it as lost or stolen. But the US Customs and Border Security did not not allow me to continue my journey and I had to return back to Chennai.

Question for which I could not get any response from Airport authorities, I am hoping someone in the forum could give me some info on are:
1. How could my passport be flagged as stolen only when I tried to enter the US and not anywhere else?
2. Whom should I contact to nullify the flag that my passport is stolen so I can travel back to the US?
3. How is it possible for someone else (if it was the case) to report my passport as stolen? Has anyone faced similar issue?

Hello,
I am in Michigan on an F1 student visa. I had my passport issued in 2006 in Bangalore, India and is due for renewal this year. I have a few questions regarding the process:

1. Must I be a walkin customer, or can I post my passport for renewal?
2. Where can I find the appointment setting page on website? I do not find it.
3. If I am a walkin customer, must my visa be notarized? If so, what other documents must be notarized?
4. Can I avail passport delivery to my address in Michigan (being a walkin customer) since I may not be able to go to Chicago for collection. Also, will my old passport be returned, since it has my valid visa in it.
5. My full name is XXXX YYYY (last name is YYYY). In my current passport, there is no surname, and my given name is YYYY XXXX. Can I get this changed in the reissued passport? If so, what is the procedure?
6. I have an ECR check on my passport. I graduated my Bachelors in 2013 and have proof of it as well. Can I get it removed on the new passport?
7. Should I mention my US address on the work order form, or my Indian address?

Hello experts. My name was printed incorrectly on my Indian passport (Validity: Dec 2017)and due to that I am facing lot of issues in the US. Now, I am planning to get the passport corrected.

Name as mentioned on passport currently: Given Name: YYY ZZZ Surname: <Blank>
Name as it should be: Given Name: YYY Surname: ZZZ

The question is that whether after name correction, I will be issued the passport with validity Dec 2017 or will I be issued a passport with validity 10 years from the date the name split application will be submitted.

Hi All,

Does any one of you know how to refill the BLS application form for a returned application.
This did not allow me to update the Tracking numbers on the application.
Please help, I tried calling but no reply from BLS.

I am trying to resubmit the Application to SFO office after an address correction.

Thanks
Pawan.

But it is worst to give 2 addresses, currently i got a SHOW CAUSE notice form Regional Passport office. They imposed 5000 fine. But i dont have clarity about onething when i received the passport which address will be mentioned on my Passport. Is it Perminant Or Present address.???

Hi

I need immediate help in the regard of affidavit for child's passport to be issued in india sfo.

As per guidelines mentioned at http://www.cgisf.org/page/display/162/236, I sent below documents
to consulate at SFO

1. Original Passport
2. Cashier check of 23$
3. Supporting documents.
In that link we do have below paragraph.
Fee : A non-refundable fee of $ 20 (twenty) + $3 Indian Community Welfare Fee (ICWF) w.e.f. Oct. 01, 2012 per attestation. If you want to receive the attested documents back through mail, either send a trackable pre-paid return mailing envelope (USPS 'Express Mail' or FEDEX etc.) or enclose a money order/cashier’s check for $ 20 (twenty) payable to Consulate General of India - San Francisco.
If we are not sending traceable return then do we need to send an extra 20$ apart from 23$ cashier check fee or 23$ cahier fee is included with all?

Regards
Shaikh
