  1. I want to apply for a fresh passport but I don’t have my birth certificate with me, I have adhar card, driving license and nationalised bank passbook with me can I provide this original documents to avail my passport.

    • does aadhar card have date if birth mentioned or pan card which can have date of birth mentioned u go to the site and see the FAQs

  2. I have to renew my passport, which has expired in 2001. It contains a Saudi Visa where I have worked, and it also contains the US H1B visa, as well as a UK visitors visa (all visas are expired now). It was issued in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

    My question is, when I apply for a new/renewed visa from Belgaum, Karnataka, will I get back my original old expired passport along with the new/renewed passport?

    While on the topic:
    I also have a US SSN (Social Security Number, which never expires) based on the old passport’s H1B Visa details, so do I have to carry the old passport at all times if I will be visiting the US, even if I’m not working there at this time? The answer is very important to me… and I guess there are some citizen in Belgaum who would have a similar experience: old passport from another state, has old/expired H1B visa, and are returning to USA to their children’s home there… has the never-expiring US SSN helped them in the US in opening a bank account there, for example? Do you know of any such examples?

    Thanking you in anticipation.
    God Bless!

    • an expired passport makes no sense. U have to apply for a new one now.
      If you are staying in Belagavi and have an aadhar card with address of here u can apply at the POPSK

      • Dear Editor,
        Warm greetings!

        I forgot to mention earlier that I am a Belagavi citizen/resident for 20+ years now, and have Aadhaar card mentioning my Belagavi home address, I/we own a home here, also have Belaqavi savings bank accounts, and have a voter’s card validating my Belagavi residentship.

        Thank you!

    • You have to carry the old passport until your Visa on that passport is valid till date.! Better to archive it and don’t dispose it off.

      • Of course, all the work-related visas are expired now. Even the UK tourist visa was got from US where I was working and had a company/business related short tour of UK where I did the Europe division survey for my US company in that short time.

        So all those visas helped me achieve a lot.The old passport is therefore extremely important to me. No question I will lose it. I always keep it on my present work desk at home, from where it motivates me to do better all the time! I shall always preserve it.

        Point is: the old passport and all the work visas have expired almost 15+ years ago, but the US SSN is still valid, and shall remain so until I am alive. So the old passport is still connected as I got the SSN in US while working there based on the H1B visa stamped on it.

  3. My wife has to get her passport renewal. We are from Bellary but I work here and my wife is a home maker. Can I apply for renewal of her passport from POSK Belagavi? I have rental agreement that I stay here in Belagavi and I do have my empoyment certificate from Belagavi. But she has her all documents address from Bellary. I want to apply here in POSK Belagavi as it is very close to me. Your suggestion/advice is highly appreciated. Thank you.

  4. if appointment for particular date is fixed 50 on that particular day only those 50 applicant’s documents verification & other formalities will be done for those 50 only or it will as per people present on the day. Means other than 50 appointment received people may come on that day?. please clarify?

  5. Have applied for reissue of passport, document submission at POPSK is done and the status of the application in MSEVA App and as well in website is showing application is granted and police verification report is submitted and I would receive an SMS/email once the passport is dispatched. But I received an SMS saying contact your respective Police station for verification as well.

    My question here is whether I need to goto PS for verification or need to wait to get my passport dispatch as per status on website

  6. I have applied for re-issue passport on last week at Belgaum passport camp and when I track the status it is showing only “application submitted in camp” from that day itself. How many days to take for next movement??

        • If you have need urgent passport within a month and don’t apply in Belgaum POPSK. I applied last month for reissue of passport and still showing application submitted along with fees and documents. When I called to passport office Bangalore they said still in process from 3 weeks.

          • Hey Sachin, did you get your passport yet? I did the same mistake, and mine is at same status since 12 days. Could you tell me how many days it took to get the passport. Is there a way to get it early?
