The change of address on an Indian Passport is treated as a “Re-Issue Case” wherein a fresh passport is issued to the citizen after successful completion of all formalities at the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) which is a branch of the Mumbai Passport office created for the convenience of the citizens.

The procedure is pretty simple.
Step 1. Create an online login Id on the Passport Seva Website: http://passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/user/userLogin
Step 2. After Logging in Select the option “Apply for Fresh Passport / Reissue of Passport”
Step 3. Now there are 2 options to fill the form for the appointment at the PSK.
a. Online: Here you have to fill the form online and proceed. You need to keep your existing passport ready.
b. Offline: Here you take a printout of the form and fill it and than scan and upload the same at leisure.
Step 4. On successful completion and submission of the form, print the payment receipt and make the payments.
Step 5. Once the payment status is updated (which takes 3 working days) you can schedule an appointment.
