All Indian citizens who leave India or intend to leave the nation and foreigners who enter and exit India need a valid passport or another travel document. According to the Passports Act of 1967, the Indian government is authorized to issue various keys and travel documents, including emergency certificates, identification certificates, official passports, diplomatic passports, and regular passports. You can receive the final two papers only in an emergency.
