DOB change in passport

A passport is one of the most important pieces of document that acts as an identifier for an individual. It is also one of the most potent documents for your address proof. Passport holders can travel to and from foreign nations more easily and receive consular assistance. It certifies persons of the holder’s nationality.ย ย 

While you apply for or reissue a passport, the applicant must submit a list of documents to verify your date, including the birth certificate. But the issuing authority can make an error while issuing your passport. It is quite uncommon for the issuing authority to publish inaccurate data, however, if this happens, the applicant can notify the passport office and seek to get it corrected. After receiving the passport, the applicant may uncover that the printed date of birth that he or she has provided is inaccurate. If the passport authority caused the error, a new passport with the right date of birth is issued without charge. If the applicant made a mistake, a cost of Rs. 500 would be paid for issuing a replacement passport with the accurate date of birth.

In this blog, we shall talk about the actual procedure through which you can change the date of birth in your passport.ย
