The Indian Consulate in Dubai has established a special walk-in camp to handle emergency passport renewal applications due to high demand. The mission started on May 19 that special walk-in Passport Seva (Service) Camps will conduct at four locations of BLS International Centre, the outsourced service provider for processing passport applications, on two consecutive Sundays. 

Where Are The New Centers In Dubai?

Apart from the BLS Centres in Dubai’s Al Khaleej Centre, Deira City Centre, and Premium Lounge Centre, as well as the one in Sharjah’s HSBC building. However, the walk-in service was offered last Sunday. The walk-in service will be available on May 29 at two more locations:

Eligibility To Walk-In

Last Sunday, the mission permitted applicants with expired passports or those set to expire by June 30 to walk in with their applications. It also allows applicants with passports due to expire by August 31 to come in with their applications. Those who want to travel during the warmer months would benefit from this.

Aside from that, this program will aid individuals who need to travel in an emergency. Emergency passport renewals are available for students travelling to India for admission to educational institutions or to apply for student visas in other countries.
