An Indian Passport holder is eligible to obtain a new passport when his/her current Indian Passport expires. The earliest an Indian national can apply for a new ten-year Indian Passport is a year before the expiry of his/her present passport. The fresh Indian Passport that is provided to the applicant has ten year validity. To put it clearly, if an Indian Passport holder has his/her passport expiring on December 31, 2011, application for a new Indian Passport can be submitted with the Embassy on any working day (as per the timings) between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

Please note that Government of India has stopped the practice of issuing Additional Booklets on existing Indian Passports. The practice of adding pages to existing passports has also been done away with. Hence, in case of either the pages of the existing passport getting exhausted or in case of completion of validity of the passport, the applicant is required to apply for a new Indian Passport only, as per the required process.

All individuals seeking to apply for a new passport are required to deposit the application form and documents in person at the Embassy.  The applications should be completely filled.  One photograph to be pasted on the first page in the given space and two photographs to be provided separately.  In column 14, applicants who are working should write their designation, company’s name and complete address with telephone number.  Incomplete applications will be rejected. 

Except for short validity Indian Passports which can be issued by the Embassy in cases of emergency (i.e., when lost/stolen/damaged), all passports are now being printed in India and therefore it will take about THIRTY DAYS for issue of a printed passport, i.e. if everything is found to be in order in respect of the application form, photo, etc., by the authorities in India. In case a reference is to be made to the original Passport Issuing Authority, it might take longer time. Applicants are advised to contact the Embassy 30 days after submitting their application forms to check the status of their new passport.

If an Indian national who is on a short visit to Austria and his/her Indian passport is lost, stolen or damaged within the period of validity of his/her Austria/Schengen visa, the individual is required to approach the Embassy immediately for a travel document.  Such individuals would be issued a short validity passport as they may not remain in Austria for 30 days, which is the time generally taken for preparing a full validity passport.

In case an individual on a short visit to Austria loses his/her passport and is unable to pay the requisite fees and wants to depart for India urgently, an Emergency Certificate is issued to him/her which is valid for return to India. Emergency Certificate issued to an Indian national by the Embassy does not validate travel to any other country and is meant for one way travel to India only.

A Short Validity Passport is issued for a period of six months only in the cases when the Embassy finds it necessary to issue such Short Validity Passports.
