MEA Launched Passport Seva App & Scheme To Apply For Passport From Anywhere In India-Details

Union Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) launched 'Passport Seva App'& Scheme for applying for a passport from anywhere in India 

MEA Minister, Sushma Swaraj launched the new scheme under which a person can apply for a passport from anywhere in India irrespective of the place of stay.

Sushma Swaraj on the occasion of the Sixth Passport Seva Divas also launched a mobile application, 'Passport Seva App' available in Android and iOS platforms. It will have the facilities for applying, paying and scheduling appointments for acquiring a passport.

Under the new scheme, a person can now choose the Regional Passport Office (RPO) and the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) or Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) for submitting the application.

The application can be submitted irrespective of whether the person's present residential address was within the jurisdiction of the selected RPO or not, a Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) statement said.

The police verification, if required for a specific passport, would be conducted at the address specified in the application form, it said.

The passport will be printed and despatched by the RPO selected for application submission by the applicant to the address specified in the application, the statement said.

This citizen-centric initiative of the MEA is believed to benefit the applicants who are unable to apply at a PSK or POPSK near their ordinary place of residence, the statement said.
