need Urgent suggestion- Passport




Hi everyone,

My Indian passport will expire on March 08 2018. I booked tickets to go to India on january 13, 2018 for 3 weeks.
What are her options now? I have PR here.
Can I still go to india without 6 months passport validity?

Experts please advice. Your suggestions are much appreciated.

Thank you very much in anticipation.

Priya.

USE the TATKAL System to get a NEW Passport.


When you are in India, you are an Indian. And for the Immigration Officers there in India you are a RETURNING Resident. So, They will let you in with your Indian Passport.

After you land in there, you can get a NEW PASSPORT Valid for a good Five years through the TATKAL System in a hurry. Please retain a Colour Copy of all the pages for your records before submission. (Just in case)

You will look prettier in the New Passport!!

Good Luck.

Cheers.

FH.

You can get TATKAL passport here in Canada itself in a week time . Just go to BLS and apply immediately and followup with embassy . I got mine renewed 2 years back without TATKAT in 10 days . Only thing I did extra is , I called embassy directly and mentioned them about my application . Just go to BLS office with your air ticket . they will do it sure in 3 days .

please ignore above post as today is Saturday so they cant process your application before monday 8th . Still you may get your passport renewed but courier delivery to Edmonton may take time . No harm to go to BLS office at Edmonton and inquire them .

Yes you can go NO issues. The 6 month validity is for a FOREIGN citizen travelling on a FOREIGN passport to India on an Indian VISA.

You are just a Canadian PR and NOT a Canadian citizen yet. You are an Indian citizen travelling to India on an Indian passport. You don't need a VISA or anything to travel back to India.

So no issues as far as Indian embassy or Canadian embassy is concerned.

Just sometimes some airlines tries to act too smart & might give you some trouble.

A friend of mine who is a Canadian citizen travelled to India last year in April, when his CANADIAN passport was expiring in May . He had no issues. They just checked if his Indian Visa was valid or not, in your case you don't even need that VISA.

So Indian passport & Indian citizen should be even less issues.
