Emergency Travel Document

GUIDELINES AND INSTRUCTIONS

An Emergency Certificate (one-way travel document), which authorizes an Indian citizen to enter India, is issued to individuals who have lost their passports or their passports have been stolen or damaged and to whom new passports cannot be issued without approval from India. This document is issued primarily with the objective of ensuring the applicant’s return to India in an emergency. Applicants should fill in the application form as prescribed for the issue of a new passport (see Application Form for an Indian Passport) and seek a personal interview with the Consular Officer whose decision will be final.

Note:

  • To avoid inconvenience EMERGENCY TRAVEL DOCUMENT applicants are requested to approach the Consular Wing with completed application and all necessary supporting documents
