Can we apply for VISA while waiting for newborn Passport? 491 Invitation is about to expire in 30 days

Hello,

I got invitation for 491 30 days ago, but my newborn is waiting for her passport. Is there any possibility to apply visa without passport?

Thank you,
Rajan

Passport is required. Get it in tatkal if you can.

Thank you for your reply Anil. I have already applied before got the invitation as normal not in tatkal. Getting this status on passport India website “Your passport has been printed and being forwarded to Embassy/Consulate. The Embassy/Consulate will contact you once they receive the passport for dispatch.”. Any idea how long it will take?
