FAQs on Passport/Attestation/PIO/OCI Services

Q. 4     What shall I do if the lamination of my passport comes out or gets damaged?

Ans.   If the lamination of your passport has come out, please do not try to fix it on your own as it may further damage your passport. In such cases, you are requested to approach Counter No. 6 or 7 in the Consular Hall of the Embassy along with original Civil ID or any other identification document and Passport. On verifying the condition of the Passport, Embassy re-laminates passport free of cost. If the Passport is damaged beyond repair then you need to fill up online application form at website https://embassy.passportindia.gov.in/for issue of fresh Passport.
If the original Passport is issued from the Embassy of India, Kuwait then the new Passport will be generally issued in 15 days otherwise it may take around 30 days.

Consular services seekers may please note that bags and briefcases are not allowed in the Embassy premises.
