Passport renewal status - Under Process for 6 weeks

(Test) #1

Hi Anil
It has been 6 weeks since CKGS shows the status as “under process” with Indian Embassy.

Do we have a way to know if my renewal is stuck at some stage?

As far as I know, you can only check the status on CKGS website.
Apart from that, Indian embassy will not entertain any request for status and CKGS would not know what is happening either.

Was your last passport issued in India?
If yes, then most probably, Indian embassy is waiting for clearance from Indian RPO ( regional passport office) for you.

Indian RPO usually takes 4-6 weeks to respond.

10 weeks since application is at Indian Embassy. But no change in status. It still says in progress.

Last passport issued in India.

Should I be worried? Any suggestions to follow up with somene?

There is no need to worry. Indian embassy is probably waiting for your report from Indian RPO (regional passport office).

They will issue it once get it back. You can follow up with CKGS to see if they have any more information about your application.

Hi Anil

I see that latest status as " Application ‘Reviewed’ by Consulate and ‘In Transit’ to CKGS Application Centre on CKGS site.

it does not clearly say if my Passport renewal application is approved or not.

Please advise if you have idea about this status.

Its approved and your passport is on its way to you.
You will get it within a day or two at your doorstep.
