Passport under review after receiving

After receiving my passport, I got an email about police verification. My relative went with all the requested document to police station this monday. The police said the verification is done. Today I checked my status in the passport seva site and I see “Passport application is under review at Indian Embassy/Consulate.”
I do not understand what is going on. When I used to check the passport seva site before receiving the passport, I saw the following status:

  • Passport application is under review at Indian Embassy/Consulate.
  • Passport print initiated
  • Passport print complete
  • Passport handed to VFS for further dispatch

and now its back to under review. Has anyone experienced the same? Is there anything I need to or can do? Is this a problem? Can I travel now with my new passport?


Wait for a few days to see if this is due to PV. Sometimes, it takes time for PV to be reported/reflected in all relevant systems.

If you still see same status, you can reach out to your embassy/consulate for clarification. Though, I do not think it is a matter of concern - as long as PV is done successfully and you have your passport in your hand.

Thank you for your reply. The status in the govt site still shows under review.
Any idea on what the status might change to once the embassy/consulate receives the ok regarding the police verification?

Regarding your last sentence, I do have the new passport in hand, but how do I know if the PV has been done successfully? Only thing I know is that the police were satisfied with all the documents that my relative showed/gave them on last monday and they said its going to be done from their end in the next 2 days (i.e. last wednesday).

Give it until mid of next week and then reach out to embassy/consulate. Check on your status of PV with them.
