People who select the wrong jurisdiction get their applications rejected.

Passport Renewal Rejection

Many people who are selecting an Indin embassy that has no control over their residence address are getting passport renewal denials from VFS Global Services.

Note that your fee is not fully refunded if your application is returned due to the wrong embassy.

The Indian government’s website does not auto-select the correct embassy based on your address. The responsibility of finding the correct consulate is with you.

Power of Attorney & Other Services

The selection of the correct Indian consulate is required for all purposes including attestation of power of attorney, police clearance certificate, or any other document signing requirement.

The Indian embassy accepts attestation requests by mail.

Hence, it becomes extremely important to select the correct address. They will cross-check it with your residence proof like your driver’s license or most recent utility bill.

What if I have multiple addresses?

If you have multiple addresses like a holiday home or a university dorm/hostel address in addition to your primary home, we suggest using the address printed on your unexpired driver’s license or the most recent utility bill to find the correct Indian embassy.
