The U.S. Consulate General in Chennai, India will conduct off-site passport services in Bangalore

Dear U.S. citizens:

Please read the following message carefully, as it contains detailed instructions for persons wishing to apply for American Citizen Services in Bangalore.

The U.S. Consulate General in Chennai, India will conduct off-site passport services for American citizens in Bangalore on the 9th and 10th of January 2012. During these dates, a Consular Officer will be in Bangalore to accept applications for passport renewals for minors, as well as applications for Consular Report of Birth Abroad and first time passport applications for minors. Services will be available by appointment only. Considering the popularity of previous sessions, appointments are likely to fill up quickly, so please send us your requests as early as possible.

Documentary and administrative requirements for passport applications may be found on the Consulate's internet home at http://chennai.usconsulate.gov/service.html .

Please read the requirements carefully, as failure to bring all necessary documents may substantially delay the processing of your application. Please note that, due to the limited equipment and staff available at the off-site, certain additional restrictions will apply to applications submitted during off-site collection:
Passport services will be offered by appointment only.
  • Please email your request to chennaicsoutreach@state.gov. We will respond to your request within 3 work days.
