If anyone have undergone such a process, please let me know how long it takes for processing such pre-approval applications !!!

Hi Ashok, have you had any luck with this yet? I applied mine on 08 September 2021 and I got told that it gets processed within 4-8 weeks. But wondering why it took you so much time for you and what's this pre-approval process about? Most of my friends got it in 5 weeks.

My application was acknowledged by VFS on 19/11/2021 (Friday) and was send to Indian consulate on 22/11/2021 (Monday).
I reckon it takes VFS around 9-10 working days to acknowledge applications send via post.
Thanks . I got the ack from VFS on 19 and Consulate from 22 Nov. I sent it on 17th to VFS .Fingers crossed.

Hi All,

I didn't wanted to start another thread so thought will ask the query here.
For Indian passport surrender the checklist at VFS website says to create account and application for surrender at passportindia.gov.in.
But there is a recent notification that asks to create the application at Renunciation of Indian Citizenship
I am confused, I had created the application at passportindia.gov.in, but then saw the other notification.

Do anyone has any idea or has recently applied?

Cheers,

I recently got my surrender certificate. I just followed instructions as per VFS website. I completed and printed application form using this link Passport Seva at Indian Embassies. When you click on Australia it takes you to passportindia.gov.in.

Thank you Deepak,
I sent my application on Wednesday last week using Express Post to VFS Global, but the tracking id status is still 'Pending'(after 1 week), I am worried that Aus Post might have misplaced the parcel :( ....
They are saying they can't start the investigation before January 17th :eek: .... this entire process is getting messier for me...
Any one else had any experience of delayed delivery?
