I am new to this forum and seek for some help from members here.
I am a green card holder of USA and still holding Indian passport which is about to expire in Jan 2024 and preparing for renewal.
Would really appreciate if you can help me with below questions:
Since now I have married name on green card and current Indian passport is on maiden name, I wish to renew the Indian passport with my new married name which is update in both my given name and surname. Also want to add my spouse name on the passport. Can I apply under tatkal processing given there is Change in Name?
Do I need to notarize Marriage certificate?
Do I need to submit the NAME CHANGE AFFIDAVIT given my situation, I have the marriage certificate which can be submitted as the supporting document, but I am not sure if I even require to submit the affidavit. If yes would you happen to have any format for it and where can I get it notarized?
I only have an Aadhaar card for India address proof, would that be sufficient? Also it has a maiden name (name before marriage) on it, will that be accepted? Do I need to submit this Self Sworn Affidavit for Indian Addres: https://visa.vfsglobal.com/one-pager/india/united-states-of-america/passport-services/pdf/sworn-affidavit-for-indian-address.pdf
Since this is renewal after 10 years do I need to check/select “Change in Appearance” under the items for “Change in Existing Personal Particulars”. My signature has not really changed, I believe that should be fine when not selected.
Can [Annexure - E] and [Affidavit for change of appearance & signature] be handwritten? City and DOB are not visible when print viewed. Can it be half printed and half hand written.
Moreover in all the Forms/Checklist and Affidavits should I print/type my married name or maiden name, please advise
Would really appreciate if someone can please assist with the above questions.
Thanks in advance.
