Indian passport renewal in UK- Is PPF Manditory

Post by vishali2010 » Tue Nov 05, 2019 10:11 am

Dear friends,

Hope all are doing well. Great forum and lovely people, helping each other :)

I am due to renew my Indian passport in the UK.

I am confused with PPF - Police verification form. Is it manditory to fill this form? if yes then what references I must give in the PPF form. I spoke to couple of my friends who renewed their Indian passport recently and they said they did not submit any PPF Form. But I spoke to the VFS Global customer service and they mentioned its manditory.

Can someone please share your experience, while renewing Indian passport in the UK, whether PPF - Police verification form is manditory or can be ignored

Thank You in Advance!

Thank You Lee and Rkhodi for your replies.

Yes, PFF is manditory, I tried to skip the PFF but the lady at the counter said, PFF is manditory and also said its better to give 2 references from India, rather one from India and 1 from the UK . Anyways, I filled it straight and submitted.

So guys, please fill the PFF and submit along with all other docs. All the best!

My friend applied 6months ago and they dint ask for PFF. I applied yesterday and they said PFF is manditory, I enquired with the vfs helpline and they said its manditory too. Thats my experience.

All the best :)

Hi. There is no need to provide PFF for every one. If your passport is lost or your address is changed on your passport and few more things like this. Then you need to provide PFF. Otherwise no need.

Hi,

I received my new passport today. Quicker than expected.
Applied last monday (18/11/2019)
Recevied text yesterday, that my application is processed succesfuly and new passport dispatched
Recevied my new passport today. So, in just 8 working days, I received new passport.

Regarding PFF, when I was applying, I Spoke multiple times with vfs customer service, just to be very sure if PFF is manditory and each time they said PFF is manditory. I mentioned to them that my friends who applied 6 months ago, did not provide PFF, but they said the rule has changed now and PFF is manditory. I went to the VFS without filling the PFF, but near the counter the lady gave me the form and said I must fill PFF, even though there is no change in address, even though nothing has changed from my old passport.

So guys, thats my experience. So its up to you to fill PFF before going to VFS or fill it near the counter whilst submitting the application.

All the very best, I did not get answer for my query on time, hopefully this will be little help for those who are confused whether PFF is manditory or not.

Best Regards :)

Hello vishali2010 and others
Thank you for sharing your experiences.
I am renewing my visa. My wife and I also want to include spouse name. Hence both are applying.

In PPF, did you provide One reference in UK and One in India?

This is a silly question. Should they be from the same town near the address? I have childhood friends who live in London. I would prefer them.

In my case, I haven't lived in the current UK address for past one year. Should I give another set of form + reference for previous UK address?

There is not much of clarity here.
Wish there was policy guidance document for these.
Thank you in advance. Any input will be really appreciated.

Hello everyone,
Thank you for all your advice and tips. My wife is applying to renew her Indian passport, and I had the same question regarding PPF. Thanks for the clarification.

While filling out the online application at (https://portal3.passportindia.gov.in/Online/index.html) I have a doubt under the Applicant address details section.
Is your passport printable address out of India?*
I assume I should answer 'No' here and give Indian address, no? She is living in the UK currently, but I read somewhere you must provide an Indian address. Is this correct?

That is correct.

Hi, thank you for your reply. I assume you will need to provide address proof if you put down the UK address (in Other address section)?

Yes you would have to provide them utility bills or council tax bills or bank statements as address proof.
