In accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) guidelines the Government of India introduced Machine Readable Passports with effect from 26th August 2007.  In the case of Indian nationals applying at the Embassy of India Ankara, these passports will be printed and issued from India.  The applications for such passports are required to be submitted to this Embassy well before the date of expiry of the existing passports for processing by this Embassy and issue of passports by the concerned office of the Government of India in New Delhi.  Such passports will be issued in India and received by this Embassy for delivery to the applicant concerned.  The whole process for issuing of a passport may take about three weeks from the date of application.

In emergency cases, however, this Embassy would be able to issue a hand- written short validity passport for immediate travel and the individual would then be required to apply for a Machine Readable Passport immediately on completion of the emergency journey.  The fees for the emergency passport (as for issue of a new passport) would be charged in such cases in addition to the normal passport fees for the Machine Readable Passport.  Such short validity passport will not be extendable and only a Machine Readable Passport can be issued from India in replacement.  All Indian nationals are advised to apply for a Machine Readable Passport as required well in time.
