The U.S. Consulate General in Chennai, India, will conduct off-site passport services for U.S. citizens in Bengaluru on the 27th, 28th,29th and 30th of April, 2015.
On these dates, a consular officer will be in Bengaluru to accept U.S. passport renewal applications for minors and first-time adults. Considering the popularity of previous sessions, appointments are likely to fill up quickly, so please send us your requests as early as possible.
Requirements for passport applications can be found on the Consulate's homepage at http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/service.html. Failure to bring all necessary documents may delay the processing of your application.
Due to resource limitations, certain restrictions apply to applications submitted at the off-site location in Bengaluru:
- Services will be offered by appointment only. Please email your appointment request and contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond within 5 business days. Appointments should be made in the name of the person(s) receiving the service and should specify all services requested. This email address has been designated exclusively to accommodate these appointment requests. Continue to send all other inquiries/concerns to email@example.com.
- Due to security requirements, we will inform you of the location of the service upon appointment confirmation. Space is limited, so please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to your assigned time.
- Payment must be made by demand draft only, in favor of the U.S. Consulate General and payable at Chennai. Please see the Consulate website for fee details: http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/service/appointments-and-contact-information/u.s.-citizen-services-fees.html
- All passports are now returned via courier. You must bring a separate demand draft in favor of “First Flight Couriers LTD” for Rs. 350. The demand draft should be made payable at Chennai. Any variation from this will not be accepted by First Flight Couriers LTD. We cannot accept cash for this service.
Appointments will not be given to discuss U.S. visa issues. The officer will not be able to entertain appeals, document submissions, or inquiries related to U.S. non-immigrant or immigrant visas.
