Passport for a Newly Born Child

PASSPORT FOR A NEWLY BORN CHILD 

For a child born in the Philippines, Federated States of Micronesia and Palau to be registered as an Indian citizen, the application must be made within one (1) year of the child’s birth on the prescribed form. In case the child is above one (1) year, the case will be referred to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India for clearance. Birth will be registered and Indian passport issued on receipt of clearance. 

An affidavit needs to be submitted by the parents stating the reason why the child was not registered within one year of birth and that the child has not acquired citizenship of any foreign country. If one of the parents is a foreign national, parents will produce a letter from the Department of Foreign Affairs confirming that the child has not acquired citizenship of that country. Embassy (Consular Section) may be consulted for additional application requirements.
