Indian expats in Dubai can get Tatkal passport same day

Good news to Indian expats in Dubai and the Northern Emirates. Now they can get their tatkal passport on the same day if they apply before 12 noon. If they apply by the said time, they will receive their passports in the evening by 6:30 p.m.

However, those who want to utilize this facility should have to pay a higher fee.

The Cost of regular passport issuance is Dh 285 for 36 pages and Dh 380 for 60 pages. Whereas the fee for a tatkal passport is Dh 855 for 36 pages and Dh 950 for 60 pages.

The Gulf News report stated that those who applied for their passports under tatkal before 12 noon will be issued on the same day.


Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul quoted this information to Gulf News. He said that passports are issued in 24 hours under the tatkal category. But, now services are improved further and will be issued on the same day.

The applications for the tatkal passport should be submitted at the office of BLS International, in Al Khaleej Centre in Bur Dubai. The facility will be effective from 12 January at the Centre.

BLS International is a service provider for Indian passport and visa applications in Dubai.

The announcement on the tatkal passport was made in celebrations of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas at the consulate.

This initiative will benefit people who need emergency issuance of passports. Many people are not aware of their passport expiry until the time of their travel. But, it is difficult to renew their passport at such times as they do not have enough time. This facility will also be useful for such people.

The consulate receives around 850 passport applications daily. It issued more than 200,000 passports in the last year.
