Passport may no longer serve as address proof

Passport may no longer serve as address proof

The first page of the passport features the photograph of the holder. This was stated by the MEA on Friday. The committee also looked upon the passport issues relating to the children with single parent and that of adopted children.

The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday announced that new passports will soon be printed without the names of parents and the home address of the applicant. The last page contains information such as the names of the Father, Mother, Spouse, Address, ECR and old passport number with date and place of issue of the holder of the passport.

"The Report of the Committee had been accepted by the Ministry".

Govt. officials have a white passport, and diplomats have red passports, and this colour combination won't change.

After examining International Civil Aviation Organisation's guidelines regarding machine-readable travel documents, MEA decided that the last page of the passport booklet will no longer be printed. A MEA representative did not react to an email looking for input but rather Surendera Kumar, under-secretary of approach and lawful issues at the consular, travel permit and visa division of the service, affirmed that the change could happen when the "next series" of identifications is being issued.

With highly-acclaimed TDE releases from Kendrick Lamar , SZA , and ScHoolboy Q, Rock is indeed overdue to drop an album.

However, this legendary proof of existence will soon vanish, because Govt of India is planning to create a new design of the passport, with new colours and new features.

The blue colour previously covered the ones who require emigration check (ECR) and those who do not (ECNR) but as per the recent developments, the former might have orange coloured passports to ease emigration process.

Since then, the passport has been considered as a valid travel document, which is legal and issued by the country's government for global travel. The existing passports would remain valid till their date of expiry.

However, sources said that application forms for new booklets would continue to capture the data regarding parents and postal addresses as mentioned in the passport holders' previous booklets.
