How to Cancel or Reschedule Passport Appointment Online 2018?

Want to cancel or reschedule passport appointment online? In that case how to reschedule appointment for passport online without visiting PSK or passport office?

Let us check how to do this activity below. With the implementation of new passport application process, now one can do everything with the Passport India website.

Few rules are also applied to make the first passport application valid for a period. In the other hand reschedule limit has also been defined. In this article we will talk about passport appointment reschedule rules and procedures.

Why do you Want to Reschedule Passport Appointment Online?

Hope you have got an appointment for you by following the tips to get Passport Appointment Online. But after that, you have to reschedule passport appointment date.

There could be various reasons & we don’t want them to happen. But we can not control everything in our life. So I think the 2 major reasons to reschedule passport appointment online could be

1) Might be some other priorities are planned on that day and for that you can not visit the PSK

2) You might forget the date and miss online passport appointment

Steps to Cancel or Reschedule Passport Appointment Online

  • You have to visit Passport India portal and follow the steps to cancel or reschedule passport appointment date:
    Login with your email id and password created while applying for a fresh passport.
  • Go to Saved/Submitted Applications screen and click on Schedule Appointment link. In that screen you can find two buttons: Reschedule Appointment and Cancel appointment.
  • Click the Reschedule Appointment/Cancel Appointment button. It’s not like first you have to cancel and then only reschedule. As per the new rule, one can perform this cancel / reschedule option twice per year from the date of fresh passport application. In fact you will get a pop-up message with similar text on it. So be careful and keep a track of your actions.
  • If you click on reschedule appointment button, you will be asked to provide PSK location and then you can see the appointment booking screen. If you are lucky then you may get a date to book your passport application appointment immediately. Otherwise it is the similar process you followed while applying for a fresh passport or the procedure to apply for reissue of passport before expiry date.

Tips to Remember to Reschedule Passport Appointment Online

After successful booking you have to take the print out of the new generated form. Visit your nearest PSK to complete the process this time. In case you want to cancel the appointment and may be rescheduling in future within 1 year than simply click on Cancel Appointment button. You will get a message saying your cancellation request completed.

So both the situations are different. You have to think wisely before clicking on cancel or reschedule passport appointment online. Remember you have a limited chance to complete the process. In case you missed out both the chances, then you have to apply for a fresh passport again by paying the passport application fee.

Did you reschedule passport appointment online? Was that experience good? What is the status of your passport application freshly taken? Do you think the current online passport appointment system is the best system so far?

  18. Hi, I Need a Help,
    I have submitted my application with Re-issue of passport, and paid the fees as well and set the schedule appointment, after then i observed that i need to change something related to Non ECR and make it normal instead of tatkal, because tatkal taken 2000 more from Normal, so i want to go to Normal.
    But i have already paid the fees 1500 online, and rest it says that need to pay at PSK office.
    In that case how i can get refund and fill again fresh passport re-issue form.
    Or is there any way where i can use the same payment for my fresh application.
    I would really appreciate if you provide me valuable feedback.

    1. I don’t think you will get your money and re-apply the same for tatkal. Only customer care people can answer your query. Please visit your nearest PSK and get it resolved.

  24. I had an appointment on 30th December, 2015 @ 2:00 PM. I go to my PSK which is in Kolkata. I carried each and every documents which can be need there, because I followed the Document Adviser from website which said me about those documents. Now when I go to submit it they asked me about my marksheet. Now tell me, if an 50 or 60 years old man making a passport for go to abroad to his son and the man is not educated and didn’t also have the Birth Certificate, then he will not be able to get a passport? This is rubbish. They mark a “R” sign on my application and told me to take a rescheduled date for an appointment and it can be done through website. I called the customer service for how to reschedule an appointment, they told me this steps

    1. Login to the site.

    2. On the left side there is a menu called “View Saved/Submitted Applications”, click on it.

    3. In this page at the bottom there is an paragraph called “Reschedule/Cancel an Appointment”.

    4. In this paragraph there is no link for cancel or rescheduled for an appointment. It’s only written with this paragraph below:
    “Once an appointment at Passport Seva Kendra/Passport Office is confirmed, it can be rescheduled/canceled only twice within a year of the first appointment date.”

    Now, tell me how can I get this link for rescheduled date for a new appointment date.

    1. step2: once you clicked “view saved/submitted applications” , another page will be displayed in that there will be a link called schedule appointment. If you have already scheduled then in that page two buttons will be there reschedule appointment and cancel appointment. click reschedule appointment

      1. I am having the same issue, missing document case. But the site still showing my Past appointment date (29/11/16) as Active, On selecting Schedule Again going as a Fresh appointment Case allowing me to select future appointment date (04/01/17) but not giving any option for Reschedule or Cancel the previous appointment. Let me know , what i will do here.

        Also, Once you Paid for Passport Fee, how long (Period) this fee is valid?
        Also, Per Year their is a 2 times limit of Reschedule for appointment; does if requires Fee if it goes than 3 or it will allow me as for my case this Schedule/Reschedule will happen in next year (2017) but i paid Fee in Year (2016) on 27/11/16.

  25. Re.: RE-SCHEDULING missed appointment on-line

    Once you missed your appointment (due to any reason), just click on schedule appointment button and follow similar process you followed while applying for a fresh passport or the procedure to apply for reissue of passport.

  26. Hi, my experience goes as follows:

    Please advise me

  31. i am getting the very next day of booking a tatkal for re-issue of appointment. Even re-schedule shows the same date. It is not possible for me to go on this date. So i called Call Center to inform them and to schedule it one day later. He said its was not possible, and told me to simply miss my appointment and the system will allot a new date automatically. You can keep missing your appointments till a convenient date shows up for upto a year. Which i found rather strange. The website should be giving options for the dates.

  41. hi, I m chandran

    last week i sheduled my appointment for fresh passport. The problem is i completed my studies and searching for job. but the person who filled my application entered the employment type as “student” instead of “unemployed”. Is there any way to solve this issue.

    1. Try to contact nearest Passport Seva Kendra and look for how to correct your passport data. One should not allow others to fill up the passport application form, even though filled up at least you should have verified the same from your end once.

  42. Hi I have applied for the passport in last year December 2014. I made the payment in online and i have not booked an appointment as i didn’t have all the documents ready with me. Later due to some problems i had to shift to a different location(In the same City). Now i have been staying in the current location for more than six months. Is it possible to change the address in passport application to the current address ?. If not can i apply for fresh passport again with the new …address details ?. Please suggest…

  43. My name is “ANIRUDH KUMAR R” in aadhar card and degree certificate. But in my birth certificate it is “R.ANIRUDH KUMAR”. So does the order of initial matter?

    1. Its better to use “ANIRUDH KUMAR R”, as both are used in Aadhar card & degree certificate. Birth certificate is no use now I think.

  44. Dont understand, while scheduling it should atleast show 2-3 optional times. It just shows one and you have to take it.
    In interview they found 1 document missing and asked me to take new appointment online only which I am getting almost after a month!!

  45. Hey, I had booked an appointment with the PSK, but they cancelled my appointment because I did not have all the required documents with me. I was told that I can book 3 such appointments again, but when I tried to book another appointment, the “Schedule appointment” link is not working (it is a dull grey color, instead of blue- I cannot access it). Any advice on what should I do?

  46. Hi.
    I applied for passport online and successfully made the payment. Though after which i realized that one should visit the PSK on the designated date with original certificates(I don’t have them with me now and i don’t want to be put on hold).
    My scheduled appointment to PSK is on 12th of this June, I am aware that the application remains valid for almost a year, And the next possible time from now that i can visit PSK is after 6 months i.e maybe on Dec/Jan.
    Should i reschedule or cancel the appointment?
    I do not wish to make another application and paying twice.
    Now as the rescheduling option is also limited, I am confused as to what should i do?
    If i cancel the appointment for now and then schedule it during Dec, Would i be asked to make the payment again.
    I am sincerely confused.
    Hoping for a quick response from your end.
    Thank You!

    1. Hi Akshita,

      I think the passport application is valid for one year only. And within 1 year you can re-schedule 2 times max. If you have consumed that limit, then better to contact nearest PSK only.

    1. Hi Reddy,

      Did you get any solution for the issue which you mentioned. Kindly help me as I am also in the same position now.

      Thanks a lot in advance.

  52. The passport office has requested additional documents and also have a given an appointment. However the date is not suitable and need to reschedule the same. I do not see the “reschedule” option to proceed further.

    Any thoughts on the same.

    1. Hi Santhosh,

      I think you can reach out to passport customer care or visit nearest PSK. Otherwise it would be very tough to answer why you are not getting that link.

      1. I have EXACTLY the same problem
        There is a link that says ‘Pay & Schedule Appointment’
        but since I have already paid, I can’t click on that link
        I have been totally unable to find a ‘reschedule / cancel’ appointment link after looking and researching for over an hour.
        When I called the number given to me, as soon as I click ‘1 for English’ or ‘2 for Hindi’ it says I pressed a wrong number
        This is HORRIBLE service by Passport Seva

  53. Hi,
    I have applied the passport in online tatkal to reissue of my passport due to exire in less than 3 months. I went to the PSK on sheduled date 22/04/2015 and they resheduled the my appointment date to 05/05/2015 due to missing document.

    Is their any way to reshedule my appointment before the given date 05/05/2015, because I already applied in tatkal to get early as early as possible,but the given appointement is too long time for me.

    Kindly help me in this.

    Thanks in advance

    1. I don’t think it would be possible, as they might have already checked the dates and then only provided you a new date as per availability.
      I think the best way would be asking them only.

  54. I Spoke to Customer care people, they told me if you miss the appointment you will get the option to schedule it again.

    1. Hi Umar,

      Thanks for sharing your update. I think this will help many readers who are looking for answer related to passport appointment reschedule process.
      Can you please share more information about
      How the customer support people are responding?
      Are the polite or rude in nature?
      How much time it took for some one to attend you?

      You experience while talking to Passport Seva customer care people.
      Thanks in advance. 🙂

  55. Hi Santanu,
    I have applied for the passport and the machine generated a date for 21st April,2015 which is not at all possible as I will be away for 3 days from 21st to 23rd April. When I checked for the reschedule option it says the next available date is 22nd April,2015, which is again not possible. So can you please suggest what shall I do now?? Is it possible to cancel my appointment ?? Also if I cancel my appointment, can I schedule an appointment with the same id after a week? or do I have to pay 1500 bucks again and start afresh?? your help will be appreciated. Thanks.

  56. due to some date issue i have cancelled my passport application which i have applied on 9 april 2015. it is mentioned we can cancel or reschedule it 2 times and i have cancelled it 1 st time. i want to know if i apply again within 1 year with same id do i have to pay again wiithin ???

    1. Hi Parul,

      It is about cancelling the appointment, not the passport application. I think it is better if you can visit your nearest PSK and raise your issue. 🙂

    1. Hi,

      I have a solution for this, click edit form and without changing any details submit the form again. Then it will give you option to schedule/reschedule appointment.

      1. Hi ,

        I also encountered with the same problem, not getting “Schedule Appointment” option to Cancel Appointment now. Also, i am not getting “edit form” option.

        Please suggest.

  61. I have booked an appoinment for 9/04/2015 in kolkata but i have noticed that there are somany dates before can i reshedule the appoinment.and also the psk center can i change.

  62. Hi
    I have applied for passport in tatkal on 25th feb and got the next day appointment. Due to the lack of pcc i rescheduled it on the same date on 25th but there was no change in date but timing was changed. So I called in the psk and they told me to reschedule it next day so I did the same. and got 27th as my appointment date. I visited the psk with my documents but something was missing so they told me to take another appointment date. Is it possible now?

  64. I am applying for a passport reissue. I have saved my application and need to now pay and book an appointment. However, only one appointment date is showing which is April 7. I’d like to book an appt. for the week of April 17 -20.

    Why is only one appt. date showing? Does the system not give the option of selecting a specific date?
    Should I just book the appt. date given and then reschedule for a date that is more convenient for me?
    I don’t understand why I am cannot choose from a selection of dates and am wondering if I am doing something wrong.

    Please advise.

    1. Hi Kalyan,

      I think appointment dates for future dates are book, not sure. Can you please call the passport customer number and ask them to reschedule your appointment to a later date?

  65. I had scheduled appointment 2 times till now but my application was rejected due to short of document. What if I miss the 3 chance also due to document as the officer always says for a new document.

    Please help

    1. Hi Akshay,

      What document that officer is asking every time? Why don’t you sit and check out the required document list properly before visiting next time. Make sure that you have followed all the steps mentioned as per Passport India rules, so that next time if someone ask you for a new document you can defend your self by referring that resource.

    2. Hi Akshay,
      Could you please help me with the same problem. I attend my two rescheduled appointment my file is on hold.
      if I will miss the 3 appointment due to document as the officer asking me will take some time then what will happened. My appoint will cancelled or I miss all the attempt. Or my fess will forfeited. Please help me.

  66. Dear Sir,I have visited PassportSevaKendra on 27-01-2015. But Verification Officer not accepted my application & gave me next appointment date on the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT LETTER.i.e on 19-02-2015. But I want to cancel the appointment as I need 3 months time for getting document. But I am not getting “SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT”highlighted though I tried a number of times. If I send a FAX message to PSK office,Can they cancel my appointment ?& I may be allowed to reschedule it in future within one year. IF cancelled, they will not delete the data captured (ARN number) from the computer system? PLEASE REPLY SOON. THANKING YOU,SIR

    1. Hi Raghavendra,

      I don’t know why that reschedule appointment option is not coming in your case. Generally it should come with cancel option. I think the best think you can do now is call the passport India toll free number 1800-258-1800. Regarding passport data I think it will be there for at least one year as they will provide you 2 chance max to re-schedule your passport appointment.

      I hope you will get your query resolved soon and also share your experience here if anything. 🙂

      1. I have same situation as Raghavendra. The passport application got rejected and I got another date (11th March). Now I want to reschedule because some trip has already been planned in office.
        For me, after I click the “View Submitted …”, the “Pay and Schedule Appointment” link is disabled. I called their toll number but, the IVR just drops as soon as I select the option for “other services”.
        Santanu, Raghavendra, if you find a solution, please let me know. Thanks Santanu for posting this information.

        1. Hi Vishal,

          This is very sad to hear that you did not et any help from toll free number. Due to this attitude of Passport department people are suffering. I don’t have much idea about your situation, but I think you should keep trying or if possible visit your nearest PSK and explain your situation if possible.

          Let me know if you found any solution to come out of this problem.

        2. hi.. i am in a same situation now. did you find a solution for this??
