Step 2 Passport Application – Get Started https://passport.in.ckgs.us/get-started

How much time will it take for the issue of a duplicate passport ?
Duplicate passports are issued only after receipt of clearance from the original Passport Issuing Authority. It may take 2-3 months or more.

What can you do if you have lost your passport and have to travel to India urgently due to an emergency like serious illness or death in the family ?
A short validity passport can be issued if you make a specific request, in writing, addressed to the Vice Consul, explaining the emergency and submit all documents required for issue of duplicate passport with proof of emergency and two sworn affidavits in the prescribed form from Indian nationals resident in USA, duly notarized, certifying that they know you and that you are an Indian citizen (copies of relevant pages of the passports of the two persons giving the sworn affidavits to be enclosed). Such short validity passports can be issued to only those who have submitted copies of their lost passport. In all other cases, only an EC (emergency certificate also know as "one way travel document") can be issued.

Will the short validity passport be extended for full validity subsequently on receipt of clearance from India ?
Yes.

What are your responsibilities when applying for a duplicate passport ?
You should furnish full, accurate and truthful information in the form. Misrepresentation of facts may result in denial of passport facilities. Applications received with incomplete information will remain unprocessed. A duplicate passport may not be issued for the second loss/ damage of passport. Habitual losers of passports may be denied further passport facilities.

I lost my passport recently. I've applied for a new passport. I want to know if the new passport will have the same number as my old passport, or a new number?
The new passport will have a new passport number.

I recently lost my valid passport and do not have the details. Will it be possible for the Passport Office to trace the details from your system and give them to me for filling my application form for a duplicate/new passport?
