Change of appearance for renewing Indian passport in US in Tatkal mode

hello - could someone provide an update how their process went when doing tatkal for renewal and if they chose yes/no for change of appearance?

Hello,

Did anyone have any luck with this? I have the same question.
Please update if your application went through successfully!

It went well. I got my passport in 2 weeks. I said yes for change in appearance. I don’t think it is a big deal as everyone’s appearance does change after 10 years.

Hii i havent mentions for change in personal particulars such as appearance and aignature during online form filling on government website . Will that be ok of i say that it is changed on my affidavit to be sent to vfs for change in apparrace or signature . Thank you

Hello,

Just to give an update on this. I recently applied for passport renewal in Tatkal after 10 years with ‘no change of appearance’ and passport was processed in one week with new photo I mailed with package. Hope this is helpful.

Thank you.

Hi, just to confirm, you did say that your appearance had changed and still applied in tatkal? Did you have any pre-approval of sorts from the Embassy?

Yes, I did say appearance has changed, and applied for tatkal. No preapproval is needed.

Hi Mihir, how did your application go? Did you send it under Tatkaal? And you didn’t mention change in personal particulars in the online form, but said “yes” appearance has chnaged on the affidavit?

Hi Mihir,

How did it go for your passport renewal. i am in the same boat, while filling the application, i didnt select the Change of Appearance checkbox but i am sending the notarized change of appearance form. does it work? of do i need to have another new application.

Hi Anil,

I have a general question regarding Indian passport renewal in USA , while filling the online application, i didnt select the Change of Appearance checkbox but i am sending the notarized change of appearance form. does it work? or do i need to have another new application. In recent days, many of my colleagues got the application back for multiple reasons. Thank you in advance.
