Re-issue of Expired Passport (Expired for less than one year and where the validity of Visa has also expired
Applications for expired Passports (expired for less than one year and where the validity of Visa has also expired) must be submitted in person by the applicant and not sent by post. Tatkal Scheme is not applicable in such cases. If there is no Visa or Residence Permit, then a short validity Passport valid for two years would be issued if the applicant furnishes proof that his/her visa application is pending with the UK authorities or he/she has other options to regularize stay in UK.
This short validity Passportcould be renewed on annual basis (maximum extension will be restricted to 3 years) till the Passport holder obtains a valid Visa or Residence Permit. A full validity Passport can be issued only after the Passport holder obtains valid Visa/Residence Permit.
