Re: How to renew my Indian Passport from Switzerland?

I did it recently and all went fine. For the peace of mind you may consider sending the application by registered post. Requirements are clearly mentioned here for the renewal: https://www.indembassybern.gov.in/pa...hine-readable/. See "On Final Expiry of Existing Passport".

Prepaid registered post stamp: https://www.postshop.ch/shop/en/stam...epaid/p/755604

Indian address proof: AFAIR if its not changing then do not need to send proof but I would suggest call embassy and ask.

I live in Zurich and have to renew my passport. I am quite paranoid about doing the whole thing via post. I went thru the documents and understand that I have to fill the form online, paste a phone and send 2-3 more along with the application and my original passports as well. All in call I see I have to send the following documents

1. Filled application form with one photo pasted
2. 73 CHF Fees and 2 CHF surcharge both in UBS
3. Original Passport
4. Resident Permit copy (1 number)
5. Address Proof in India (am not changing my address in India, is this mandatory to be sent??)
6. Return envelope (Registered post?? how many Swiss Francs in stamps??.. not quite clear here)

No changes to be made in Address or anything else, just renewal to be done.

Can you please assist since you have said that you have done many times, hence the request

Regards
Sathya
