Machine Readable Passport (MRP) – Mandatory

MRP is a machine readable travel document where the data on the identity page is encoded in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) format. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has set a deadline of 24th November 2015 for globally phasing out all non MRPs.

Therefore Indian citizens residing in India and abroad and holding hand writer passports with validity beyond 24th November 2015 should apply for reissue of passports and obtain MRP passports well before the deadline in order to avoid inconvenience in obtaining visa and Immigration problems as per instruction from Ministry of External Affairs, Govt. of India.Please read attachment for more details
