Hello Everyone,

I have applied for passport renewal (Normal Process) with Change of Appearance/Signature on 07/15/2019 and received a new passport today. It took a total of 7 days to receive the passport in hand if it wasn't for week-end in between it would have been 5 days only. I followed the document checklist on CKGS portal and made sure everything was in place as per the specifications provided and shipped it through UPS.

Below is my timeline for passport renewal.

Jul 22, 2019 - Passport delivered by UPS.

Jul 19, 2019 - Passport picked up by UPS.

Jul 19, 2019 - Passport ‘Received’ at the CKGS application center and is at the ‘Sorting Facility’ where it is being processed for delivery.

Jul 19, 2019 - Application 'Reviewed' by Consulate and ‘In Transit’ to CKGS Application Centre.
Jul 17, 2019 - Application is 'Under Process' at Consulate for decision making.

Jul 17, 2019 - Application is 'In Transit' to the Consulate.

Jul 16, 2019 - Application is ‘Under Process’ at CKGS.

Jul 16, 2019 - Application Verification is ‘Complete’. Processing of your application will continue.

The Consulate may request for further documents over and above those already submitted as per the Document Checklist.

Jul 16, 2019 - Application ‘Received’ by CKGS and 'Not Verified'.

You will receive an E-mail advising you of the outcome of the verification process.

Overall, It was a pleasant experience and I was surprised that the process completed in 7 days and passport was delivered to me.

Hello there, Thanks for sharing. Can you please specify your OLD passport was issued in India or USA, because processing times vary for BOTH.

Appreciate your response!
