A passport is an essential travel document for traveling abroad for education, tourism, pilgrimage, medical attendance, business purposes, and family visits. If you have shifted to a new address or plan to change the existing address to a new one, you can go through the process given below. After applying for re-issuance to change your address, you will receive your passport with a unique number registered for your new address.
Before taking the necessary steps to change the address in your passport online, it is essential to note that you need to have some of your documents ready which you will need at the time of visiting your Passport Seva Kendra (PSK). The list of required documents is given in the Passport Seva Portal.
It is also necessary to pay a certain fee to apply for a reissue of a passport. It varies depending on the age of the applicant and the reason for the reissue. You can visit the Passport Seva Portal to know how much you have to pay.
