Passport Renewal Experience (Washington DC)
First, I wish everyone stays safe as these are challenging times for everyone.

Sharing experience:

1) Only 2 passport size photographs. Pasted one on the first page of the application and another on change of appearance form.

2) Added spouse name to my passport: No need to send any certificate as Annexure E is for that purpose where we acknowledge family person names.

3) Used CKGS shipping option as it is better compared to self posting.

4) Used Notary service in UPS

5) I sent my US driver's license (UPS Notarized) and an Indian Adhaar card copy (Self Notarized). Strictly adhere to the checklist and you won't have any issues.
