Passport Application Guide
It is very important that you apply on the CKGS website and follow the due process. Do not go directly to the Government of India Online NRI Passport website.

The rules on our website will identify your passport category, type, fees, document checklist, payments, track your application and FAQS to help avoid errors. Further to assist you, many forms and letters that have repetitive information will get auto populated and you only have to fill in the missing fields.
You will be directed from the CKGS website at the appropriate step to the Government of India Passport website to fill your online NRI passport application form.
