Is copy of Birth Certificate Mandatory for Passport Renewal at SFO

Hi, in the document list provided by VFS, it says BIRTH CERTIFCATE - For Minor(Copy). Does that mean we don’t need to send it for adult applicants?

Can someone who recently applied share if Birth Certificate is needed?

Thank you.

For adults, Birth Certificate is not required (unless you are changing your DoB).

Thank you Pankaj for quick response. So In the document checklist should I leave the checkbox blank for the BIRTH CERTIFCATE - For Minor(Copy) ? Thanks again.

Yes; you need to check the checkbox only against the documents you are sending. Also, make sure you arrange them in the same order as in the checklist.
