Advisory- defacement of passport

Posted on: April 06, 2022 | Back | Print



It has been observed on multiple occasions that the Indian passports have

been used as an advertising platform by many unscrupulous travel agents,

defacing the cover of the passport by pasting their agency/ company's stickers.

This is also in contravention of Government of India's guidelines in this regard.


All passport holders are therefore requested to ensure that their passports

are not defaced by the travel agents or any other person or establishment at any

time. Defaced passports will not be accepted for any passport or passport related service.
