The External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj launched a Passport Seva App for seamless application and issue of passports. Swaraj, while addressing the officials of several Passport Seva Kendras and members of the Ministry of External Affairs on the occasion of Passport Seva Diwas, stated that the two new schemes – Passport application from anywhere in India and filling passport application forms from mobile phones – would now make the procedure for obtaining passports simpler.
Now, through Passport Seva app, people can apply for a passport from any part of the country. Police verification will be done on the address you will give on the app. The passport will be dispatched to that address: EAM Sushma Swaraj pic.twitter.com/rdYdq6sRsb
