Otherwise can i renew my passport now. And how long will take to renew my passport.I also want to add my Wife’s name to add my passport. So what is the documents required to renew for my passport.
    Thanking you advance
    Yours Sincerely,

    050 2159946

  21. Please call the office and find out Anish.

  22. Dear Mohanan. As far as I know, as long as you already have a valid visa, you can travel. Only for renewal or new visa, you need a 6 month valid date. It usually takes around 30 – 45 days for a normal renewal. Faster for urgent ones. I may be wrong. Please check with your nearest Indian Association. They do renewal. You can try the Sharjah Indian Association. Call them or visit any typing centre to find out documents required for renewal. You will also need your marriage certificate attested first if you want her name to be in your passport. Since you are travelling only in Sept, you can renew now itself.

  23. Dear Sir,

    I am holding Indan Passort issued in Dubai, vailidty of which has expired a week ago. I am based in Dubai, and want to get it renewed now. Please advise the type of “documents required” for me to visit your office for renewal.

  24. Please visit your nearest typing centre and find out what documents are required.

  25. Dear Sir,

  31. Go to the place where you submitted your passport and enquire. It will take some time to get your passport and you may not be able to travel in a week. Ask them how long. If it takes time, ask them if you can get it back and submit it later. Most probably they may have the passport and will return it if it is there. If you do have time for renewal then you can renew once you are back. I assume you have a valid visa.

  32. MR. RAVOOF



  33. Dear Nayab

    Go to the nearest BLS International, Indian Association or Embassy and you can renew there. I think there is a form which you can type in a typing centre nearby. I assume you are an Indian. If not go to your country embassy.

    thanks for your help
    Titus dsouza

  65. Hi Titus

    I dont think they add new pages nowadays. The issue a fresh passport. The current visa will of course be in the old passport. For that reason, you have to carry both the passports whenever you travel. They usually staple both the passports and return it. Once your visa expires, the new visa will be issued in your new passport and you can discard the old one. So please apply for the new passport and dont wait till the last moment. Cheers

  66. i want to apply passport for my son, india passport office say neat one letter from india empossy can u tell me processor and name of form

  67. Dear Sir,

    i want at add my wife name in my passport while renewing my pp.where i should attest the marriage certfcte?from india ?through notary officer or guestted officer?

  68. You should attest it in your home state. For ex if you are from Tamil Nadu, then you should attest it in Ministry of Home in Chennai. After it is attested there, you have to attest it in UAE. All this can be done from here. If in Sharjah, go to a typing centre opposite to IAS Sharjah and submit it. It ususally takes 20-30 days for attesting both. Then you have to fill in a form, also available in the typing centre, and then take it to BLS International in Burj 2000 Building in Sharjah and take the Original Marriage Certificate, with a copy. They will check in counter and return the certificate immediately.

  69. Dear,

    Please be informed that my passport is going to expire and my visa is already cancelled. I am going to join new company and trying to transfer my visa.I want to renew my passport on urgent basis. I have check for the documentation from indian consulate. They are asking an letter from the new employeer to renew the passport. Can you please provide me the letter format, so that I can forward it to new employer.

  70. Dear Sir,

    I want to add the spouse name in the passport. Can you tell me the document required and proceedures?

  71. Dear Sir,

    I want to change my signature in the passport. Can you tell me the proceedure?

  72. You need to provide a copy of your Attested Marriage Certificate and also have the Original for verification. Then go to typing centre and fill a form. You may require your photos because they may issue a new passport.

  73. You have to fill in the form. When adding the spouse name you can ask for signature change. But I am not sure what documents are required for this. Please ask at the typing centre or in the consulate of India. or IAS sharjah.

  74. i want to apply passport for my son, india passport office asking sworn,You have any idea for this service,,,with out my prasence any one can do this service.

The letter will be around 120 dirhams I think.

  95. Hello Sir!
    Im staying in UAE with an Indian Passport and having a 3 years residence permit.
    My passport expires on 27th Jan 2015.
    I am planning to travel on 6th of December 2014 and return on 1st jan 2015.
    Will that be a problem since my passport is not valid for more than 6 months?

    Please reply soon!
    Thank you!

  96. i don’t think it will be a problem. The problem arises only if you have no visa. Please check with your airline. They will help.

  97. If you are on tourist visa, you have to exit the country. Visit visa you can change in Dubai without exit. But… for visa stamping the system will ONLY accept if your passport has a 6 month validity. So you have to renew. Go back and renew with tatkal. you will get in a few days.

  98. I did renew my residence visa in just 3 months back. Hope it will not be a problem.
    Thank you so much sir!

  99. Dear sir
    I am working in sharjah cement . I need to take passport for my daughter who is below three years and staying in India. my spouse name is already there in my passport. Kindly tell me what are the Proof required for Affidavit and from where can I apply

  100. My indian passport expires in 1 and a half month. i do have a 3 years residence permit of uae. i have travelled to india for 10 days. and i will be travelling back on 20th december to uae. shld it be a prob? because some websites say we need 6 months validiti.
    please let me know. wud be of great help.

  101. You will need to get an affidavit from the embassy and send it back so that they can apply for passport. I don’t think they require any proof except your passport. You can go to the IAS (Indian Association Sharjah) to apply. Here you can get it only on Fridays. Else you have to apply at the embassy. Go to any typing centre in Sharjah near IAS and ask them They will give details.

  102. No issues travelling unless you are applying for visa which requires you to have a 6 month validity. Renew once back.


  104. My Wife’s residence visa is expiring on 26th Feb 2015. We are planning to travel to India on Feb 10th and come back on 14th Feb 2015. Will there be a problem ? Is there any minimum visa period required to travel?

  105. There should not be any problem to travel if there is a valid visa. There is no minimum period for travel. Please do check with any travel agent to confirm. Maybe your airline.

  106. Dear Sir,

    My aunty whom comes under srilankan nationality is having servent visa under arabic saponsor(house) and she wants to travel to India for a need alone, will they approve Indian Visa in this case without any of no objection letter from the sponsor or what is the procedure to follow up?

  107. Sorry Lahiru. I am not sure about that procedure. Please visit the Indian Embassy / Consulate or Sharjah Indian Association to enquire about that.

  108. dear sir, can we go to rasalkaimah from sharjah when our family visas r in cancellation period.

  109. Yes Raj. You can travel or stay anywhere in the UAE.

  110. greetings sir,my wifes passport has expired yday.will I be facing any issues what do I have to do pls help

  111. i dont think there will be any issue. She will not be able to travel. apart from that you just have to go and renew the pp

  112. I am working with almost all the state people. I had experience that passport renewal is delaying only for Gujarat state people.
    I feel that there is BIAS by BLS staff based on state.
    I was submitted passport for renewal & 44 days finished but still it is under process.
    My friends who is from other state they are receiving passport within a month only delaying process for Gujarat State People?

  113. Sometimes things get delayed. Maybe there is some other problem. Why dont you check online for the status. I dont think they are biased on any state. I hope not anyway. Usually they say 45 working days. Keep us informed when you do receive it. Hope you get your passport soon.

  114. Mr Ravoof,
    I need help in renewing my indian passport which is expiring on 30 june 2015.

    there is a column i need to fill up in indian passport renewal form.2 people’s contact number and details of nearest police station of home country.

    why i need to fill these details column in passport application form? Is it necessary ?my passport was issued in India after police verification 10 years ago.

  115. It is a general procedure. You need to provide it again. Just a formality but they will not be doing police verification like before. Where are you applying from? From UAE it takes around 45 days.

  116. Dear Sir,

    I have submitted my wife’s passport for renewal 30 days before. Still I didnt received the passport. Now my wife need to go the India due to am emergency on 10th April. Could you please advice me what I can do now to get the passport urgently


  117. What are the charges for the premium lounge service in dubai?

  118. Hi, I am now in Dubai and planning to travel to india in June. Can I renew my passport while I am in India? Will it affect my travel back since I will be submitting my current passport while taking a return ticket? Apparantly, on my return journey my current passport will be cancelled and I will be having a new passport with new number. Will that be a problem?

  119. You can renew in India. If you had got the Old Passport from Dubai, renew in Dubai, because it takes just 3-4 days. Renewing in India may take time, so keep in mind the number of days you have (tatkal no problem). Even though your old passport would be cancelled, it will be updated in the system and they will know you have renewed it. You should anyway carry your old passport along with you, since it will have your visa on it. There should not be any problems if you renew in India.

  131. Dear Sir,

    I have submitted my passport for renewal on 29/09/2015. I understand that it takes a minimum of 40 days for the renewal. But now I got some emergency due to which I am required to travel on 31/10/2015 for 5 days. My passport is valid till February of 2016.
    Kindly advice on what can be done to get my passport. Can I cancel my application and resubmit for renewal after I get back? If so, will I have to pay the fee again? Or is there any thing else that can be done to get my passport in time for my travel?

    Thanks &Regards

    wanted to renew and new passport copies handed over to employer fo process memployement visa.
    please reply or mail me possible views as per law.

  133. You cannot renew your passport when you are on visit. To have employment in UAE, you should have minimum 6 month validity in passport, else your application will bot accept dates less than six months. If you apply visa when there is validity, then you can renew your passport after you get your Visa stamped in passport. I hope this is clear.

  134. Sorry for the late reply. I hope you have got your passport by now.

  135. I hope you got your passport. Please excuse my late reply

  136. I submitted my son’s passport in BLS for renewal on 8 Oct 2015. Now it is a total of 41 days & still it shows processing at embassy. I want to go to India by next 4 days but still passport is under processing. What should I do for getting the passport early.

  137. I hope you have got your son’s passport. If not please do contact BLS or the Embassy.

  138. sir I want my passport renew in Dubai but old passport have sharjah visa. can I renew in Dubai

  139. You can renew your passport in any Emirate. Your visa has nothing to do with renewal of passport.

  140. Mr. Ravoof, please confirm can i renew my wife passport if the validity is more than 8months. Its getting expire in august,2015 and she may travel India in June on Summer Vacations. Also confirm the address in her passport is changed, what is the process for it.

  141. Yes you can change. It is also advisable to do so now because at the moment the authorities are saying it will take 60 to 90 days to get the passport. While applying for renewal, you can change the address in her passport to that of your address currently in your passport. If she has to change to the same address as your’s, then you will have to submit your passport copy. Also when you renew, please inform them that you also need to change the address. If the address is different, then you will need to produce some address proof for the same. In case your name is not added in her passport, you can do that also now. For that you may require an attested Marriage Certificate.

  142. Dear Sir
    I renewed my passport in BLS on 7th Dec 2015. But still I m waiting for my passport.5th Feb 2016 I m going leave.How can I collect my passport pls advice.

  143. I’m not sure how you renewed. You might get it if you did Tatkal renewal. Otherwise according to them, it might take unto 90 days for renewal. If the passport was issued in Dubai, then you will get it (you should have got it by now).

    Thanks in advance.


    Brightman. I

  148. You will NOT be able to get new visa if your passport does not have minimum 6 months to expire. The system will not accept so unless your passport is renewed, you cannot apply for new visa. You should have applied for passport 6-8 months back. Now you can’t even apply for new passport in UAE. You have to renew in India only.

  150. Dear Sirs / Madam

    Good morning

    My passport shall expire in 2019 .. But pages are almost over .. Now i have only 4 pages (2 leaflet ) , can i apply new passport ?

  151. If you are a frequent traveller the pages might get over soon. You can apply for new passport saying that you have insufficient pages. Try to get with more pages preferably 60 pages. It might cost more but good for frequent travelling.

  152. dear sir,

    i want to know about signature change in my visa and passport is valid.

  155. Dear Ravoof ,

    I need your help and suggestion , my passport is valid till December 2018 , but due to frequent traveling i have only two blank pages left in the passport. i guess they don’t issue additional booklets now , they issue a new passport altogether. My passport is issued in india but am staying in uae from many years now so i do not have a permanent residence in india as of now. will there be any police verification again if i apply for renewing the passport with the same address as in the present passport. how many days it will take for the renewal and what will be the validity of the passport.

  156. Sorry Siddarth, You should check with BLS International on this.
