Get passport in a week by giving four documents
PUNE: The service of outer undertakings has declared two noteworthy changes that will quick track the procedure for first-time visa candidates and make it more helpful to secure an arrangement at the nearby international ID seva kendra.
Subjects will be conceded a new visa under the ordinary class in a week if their applications are joined by three archives – duplicates of Aadhaar card, appointive photograph personality card (EPIC) and PAN card – other than an affirmation in the organization of Annexure-I (presentation of citizenship, family subtle elements and no criminal record).

Also, the alternative of seizing or denying the travel permit post issuance is constantly accessible and we have practiced it a few times in 2015,” Sobti said.
