Speed Post Tracking Passport Status

Tracking Passport Delivery Status Using India Post Speed Post Service

Once your passport is processed it will be dispatched via the India Post using Speed Post Service to the address you mentioned in your application.
To keep track of the delivery status, you can do so using the Speed Post-Tracking Utility provided by the India Post. The displayed status might be different from real-time delivery status. It’s, therefore advisable to confirm with your nearest Speed Post Center regarding the real-time delivery status of your passport. In rare circumstances, you might find that the Speed Post Center personnel are unable to locate your passport or it might have gone uncollected and therefore returned to the sender. In such instances, contact your Regional Passport Office for assistance.passport india gov in track status
