Passport Clearance - Ahmedabad

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Guys

My fiancee never received packet 3 from the embassy, they claim they mailed it but she never received it yet. But they did send the cover letter via email and we downloaded all the forms and sent it to the embassy as per the instructions.

The question is, if she goes to the passport office with her police clearance certificate and that cover sheet, is that good enough???

Thanks

For what document do you want to go to passport office? If it is PCC- then you don't require anything from embassy to obtain PCC -just your passport. You just need to specify the country for which the visa and PCC is being sought. If the passport has been issued recently, you can collect the PCC the same evening. At-least this is the process in New Delhi, hopefully it is same in Ahmedabad.

The embassy needs "passport clearance certificate", people get confused between PCC, but it also means passport clearance and also police clearance. You need both, because the embassy needs it.

I came to know that in order to get passport clearance, you need police clearance first and then apply for passport clearance. This is a standard procedure for K visas and am sure for the other ones too.

I think you are mistaken about the passport clearance, passport clearance is nothing but PCC issued by the passport office. I am attaching the stub from New Delhi embassy web-site. I am assuming same would be applicable for Mumbai also.

POLICE REPORT: Each applicant aged 16 years and older must submit a police certificate that includes information regarding the applicant including all arrests, the reason for the arrest(s) and the disposition of such cases. (A) Indian citizens residing in India for six months or more since turning 16 years of age must present Indian police clearance certificates from both their district police station and the local area passport office. Applicants whose passports were issued within six months of the visa interview may present just the passport office certificate. These certificates are valid for one year from the date of issuance. (B) If an Indian citizen who has lived in India for at least one year after the age of 16 currently resides outside India, he/she must obtain a certificate issued by the Indian Embassy or Consulate where he/she lives. These certificates are valid for only one year from the date of issuance.

Hope this helps.

Yes, but you also need "police clearance certificate" and a stamp in your passport which is "passport clearance" - so you need both.
