General advisory 

Indian citizens living in Malaysia are advised to apply for urgent re-issuance of their passports in the following cases:-

(i) HANDWRITTEN PASSPORTS

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has set a deadline of the 24th November, 2015 for globally phasing out of all non-Machine Readable Passports (MRPs). From the 25th November, 2015 onwards, foreign Governments may deny Visa or entry to any person travelling on a non-Machine Readable Passport. The Government of India has been issuing Machine Readable Passports since 2001. However, the Passports issued before 2001 and particularly those issued during mid-1990s with a validity of 20 years will fall in the category of non-MRPs. All handwritten passports with pasted photographs are also considered non-MRPs. 

 

(ii) PASSPORTS VALID FOR LESS THAN SIX MONTHS

Many international travellers may not realize that having an unexpired passport is sometimes not enough to obtain Visas or to enter certain foreign countries. Indian citizens travelling on Passports which may expire in less than six months should renew their passports before any upcoming international travel. It is especially important to check the passports needs of any minor who may be accompanying their parents as passports for minors have a shorter validity period (5 years) than passports for adults (10 years). The universal practice in vogue now is; “Once your passport crosses the nine-year mark, it is time to get new passport”.

 

 (iii) EXHAUSTION OF VISA PAGES

 Some countries do not accept passports which may have fewer than two pages remaining. Please check your passport to ensure that you have enough pages for visa fixation. There is no provision of additional booklets/pages and you will be required to apply reissuance of passport following standard procedures. Frequent travellers may opt for Jumbo Passport containing 60 pages.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR PASSPORT APPLICANTS

  • All applications should be filled in with full details. Incomplete applications would be rejected.
  • All applications must be accompanied by photocopies of their current passports.
  • All photocopied documents must be self-attested by the applicants. In case of minors below, 18 years, their parents must attest the photocopies.
  • Photos submitted for all types of passport services must be recent (less than 3 months) and size: 5 cm x 5 cm and white background only.
  • Applicants must check all entries in Passport application forms before submission. It is the responsibility of applicant to give correct details, spelling etc.

 Procedure for Surrender of Indian Passport/ Fee for related Services

MAIN PROVISIONS FOR SURRENDER OF INDIAN PASSPORT / RENUNCIATION OF INDIAN CITIZENSHIP:


Under Indian law, Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs), who have acquired foreign citizenship, are required to surrender their Indian passports to the nearest Indian Mission/Post immediately after acquisition of foreign citizenship.


In view of these provisions, PIOs, intending to apply for OCI/PIO Cards and Visa, should surrender their Indian passports, obtain Surrender Certificates and then apply for these services. This would also be applicable to the PIOs who seek to renew their OCI Cards or seek fresh Visa.


The Surrender Certificate, once obtained, should be produced henceforth for any services from the High Commission and copy of the Surrender Certificate should be enclosed with any application in future.


The Indian Citizenship Act, 1955, does not allow dual citizenship. Holding Indian passport/acquiring Indian passport/travelling on Indian passport after acquisition of foreign citizenship constitutes an offence under the Indian Passport Act, 1967, and attracts penalties. The Government of India has prescribed imposition of penalty on a graded scale for the violation of Passport Rules, depending on number of trips made on Indian passport after acquiring foreign nationality (with a three month grace period from the date of acquiring foreign nationality i.e. the date of certificate of citizenship), renewal of Indian passport after acquiring foreign nationality and retention of Indian Passport for more than 3 years after acquiring of foreign nationality. The date on the Certificate of citizenship will be treated as date of acquiring foreign nationality and hence, it is mandatory for the applicants to produce his / her Certificate of citizenship for obtaining Surrender Certificate.
