    Documents of Address Proof required for Passport


    Want to apply for passport and confused about what is a valid address proof for passport application? Learn more about the documents required for passport application address proof.

    I wanted to apply for a passport and confused about what are all the documents required as address proofs. I am a major so can I use the Ration Card held by my Father(My name is mentioned on it)?. And if I can use what supportive documents do I have to produce along with it?. Can I produce my bank statement that I have joint with my mothers account? And is the address proof issued by MRO office recognized as a valid address proof by the passport department?

    Thank You,

    To apply for a passport, You need to have following documents:
    1. Address Proof, or residential proof, attested by government employees.
    2. Most recent 4 Passport sized photographs.
    3. License or Identification Card for example Government ID system Card which started in 2011.
    4. Birth-Certificate, Caste Certificate, or 10th Mark-Sheet or a 12th Mark-Sheet which can proof your valid birth date.
    5. If you ever had a criminal case, then you should have a NOC on passport by the same court where your case was appealed.

    After submission of all these, there would be a police inquiry, as they will assure the truthfulness of all the facts. Then within a period of 20 days you can get your Passport.

    Documents that can be submitted as address proof.
    1. Ration card
    2. Telephone(Landline/ postpaid mobile) bill
    3. Electricity bill
    4. Bank Passbook with last one year transaction
    5. Water bill
    6. Gas connection proof
    7. Voter ID card
    8. Income Tax Assessment Order

    If you are submitting ration card, then you will have to produce one more supporting address proof. You can show the joint bank account passbook as the address proof, but the condition is that it should be in running status.

    Hello Friends,
    I would say that there would be some documents that are required to produce in passport office. The most important thing that you need to produce is the ration card. But in case you have moved to a new location or you don't have a ration card then it would be better to produce documents like Telephone Bill, Electricity bill, water bill etc., If you don't have these too then you can get your parents passport with you and this could serve as the best alternative of the ration card. These are the things that could help as a proof for address. Hope it helped you.
