Hi,

I want to share my experience renewing my passport through CKGS at NY Consulate. Long story short, the process was super smooth and fast. The experience is great, no glitches and CKGS is doing a commendable job. My passport got renewed in 2 weeks' time including processing time at CKGS and delivery of the passport back to me. The timeline of my passport renewal is below:

10/04: 01:40 pm
Application ‘Received’ by CKGS and 'Not Verified'.

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

10/04: 03:14 pm
Application Verification is ‘Complete’. Processing of your application will continue.

10/07: 04:43 pm
Application is ‘Under Process’ at CKGS.

10/08: 09:27 am
Application is 'In Transit' to the Consulate.

10/08: 09:39 am
Application is 'Under Process' at Consulate for decision making.

10/17: 10:46 am
Application 'Reviewed' by Consulate and ‘In Transit’ to CKGS Application Centre.

10/17: 10:47 am
Passport ‘Received’ at the CKGS application centre and is at the ‘Sorting Facility’ where it is being processed for delivery.

10/17: Passport picked up by FedEx.

10/18: Passport delivered at doorstep.

Thanks.

Hi,

Any idea on CKGS In-Complete Documents process? I have send all documents that CKGS requested but they still have marked application as ON HOLD.

********************************************************************************************************
Oct 17, 2019 - Thursday04:17 pmYour Application is 'On Hold' due to the 'Incomplete Documents'.

Document Name - Online Passport Application Form
Remarks - Please confirm the correct order in which the Spouse's name should be printed. Please provide a letter stating the same.Ship the Signed forms / letter to the Passport Application Center. Status - Pending

Once CKGS receives the documents and post verification, your application process will resume.
********************************************************************************************************
I have called CKGS Passport center - they suggested to write Spouse full name on a white page self attest and send back to CGKS center. Sent them TODAY.

I will this impact processing time. Please advise..

My current status says "Application 'Reviewed' by Consulate and ‘In Transit’ to CKGS Application Centre".

Does that mean that passport is approved or rejected ? Any guidance ?

How much time does it take for renewing indian passport (with address change) at SF Consulate?

Hi,

I've sent my passport (issued in India) for renewal to CKGS at SF Consulate. Normal processing (No tatkaal) with address change request (Included my aadhar card as address verification document).

Oct 7, 2019 (Mon) - Package Received by CKGS.
Oct 9, 2019 (Wed) - Application processed at CKGS and "In Transit" to the Consulate for decision making.
Oct 10, 2019 (Thu) - Application "Under Process" at Consulate.
...
Waiting since then.

I've a travel planned early Nov, I'm worried if I will get my passport on time. CKGS website mentioned that it will take 2-3 weeks for renewing (After doing their initial assessment).

Any help would be appreciated if you had similar case. Should I call CKGS or Consulate?

Thanks

I got money gram money order for CKGS passport fee payment, however the name 'Cox & Kings Global Services USA LLC' does not fit on one line. Can we write it in 2 lines? Will CKGS accept that? Has anyone faced this issue. Can you suggest what can be done.

Thanks

Hi,

I am applying for my 10 year daughters passport renewal. I have a couple of questions

1) Do we need to self attest the Color Copy of my visa, wife's visa and daughter's visa and address proof or they just need to be notarized. The checklist just mentions to notarize and not self attest.
2) On the last page of the Passport Application form for the signature it is mentioned in bracket (applicant is minor. either parent to sign). Do either of us only have to sign in the box or is it both my daughter and either of us? Do we also need to notarize this page as it is not mentioned in the checklist
