Now get your passport appointment in one day
Getting passport appointments online is now quicker. The Regional Passport Office renders your online appointment in just one day.
Passport appointments are now easy. The time taken to obtain an appointment was anywhere between one to two months depending on the centre. For the first time after the launch of Passport Seva Kendras (PSKs) on May 21 the waiting period for passport appointments has come down to one day. Appointments might take only a day but actually getting a passport in your hands might still be delayed as the police verification is pending in case of more than 55,000 applications.
Passport appointments can be obtained the very next day, at the four Passport Seva Kendras (PSK) situated in Bangalore, Hubli and Mangalore. The daily slots for online appointments for the next working day will be released at 8 am everyday. As of June 21, 2011, the Passport office has stopped accepting applications in physical form. This service has received a positive response from Bangaloreans.
Even though it is time saving and hassle free some people claim that this service is best viewed with Internet Explorer. The website is fairly comprehensive, but not all the features can be viewed with Mozilla. Users might miss out on getting an appointment ID and this is very important to even enter the PSKs.
