Which Indian passport can you buy online? | The Guardian
Posted On July 14, 2021
The world is still in shock over the devastating floods that swept through parts of India, killing more than 10,000 people.
However, if you’ve got a valid passport, it’s easy to buy online.
The most popular options on the website are the cheapest ones.
But, for a more comprehensive guide to India’s online passport sales, we have put together a list of the most popular Indian passports available for sale, and their prices.
The cheapest option for a passport is the Indian Passport Card, which costs only $15 and comes with a 3-year card.
For $1,000, you can buy a passport for yourself, or your spouse and children, or a group of people.
A passport that has been issued by the Indian government is called an Individual Travel Document (ITD).
For more than half a million Indians, a passport costs around Rs.50, and the best option for Indians is a Personal Identity Card, or PIC, which has a fee of about Rs.5,000.
It can be used to purchase flights, medical treatment, and more.
As for the best price for a PIC: A 1-year passport will set you back around Rs 1,000 ($300), and a 10-year will set off you at around Rs 2,000($450).
A 20-year PIC will set us back around $10,000-$20,000 (approximately Rs.8,000 to $13,000).
Here are some other good options: A 1-day passport, which is the cheapest option, costs about Rs 1.5 lakh ($500), and comes in four denominations: One-day, two-day and three-day.
Another popular option is a 3.5-day PIC with a 5-day validity period, which cost about Rs 2.5 crore ($2.8 million).
A 10-day travel document is also available for about Rs 4.5 million ($7.8 billion), and is a combination of a 10 day passport, a 3 month PIC and a 20-day card.
This document can be purchased at about Rs 8 crore ($13.4 billion) per year.
An Indian passport card can be bought for about $4,000 or less, with a validity of at least six months ($5,500), or up to a year ($10,500).
Other popular options include a 10 years PIC card, or 10 years travel document with a 10 year validity, for about about $12,000 each ($19,000) or a 20 years passport, or 20 years travel documents with a 20 year validity for about £9,500 ($16,500) per passport.
A cheaper alternative is a two-month PIC issued by India’s central bank for about €3,500, or for about 1.2 million ($4,300) per person.
The PIC is valid for five years ($5.5 to 6.5 years), and can be applied for for up to five times per year ($5 to 10).
The best travel document, however, is a five-year travel document that is valid to 20 years ($25,000), with an average validity of 15 years ($35,000 per person).
An option that is slightly cheaper is a 20 month travel document for $7,000 from a bank in the United States.
This card can also be applied to up to 10 times per calendar year ($7,500 to $11,500 per year).
India has a very diverse population, with many different religions and ethnicities, and its passport laws and practices vary by country.
Some Indian passport holders are also known for their use of fake documents.

The price of a passport can vary depending on where you live and how much you have to spend.
However if you want to save money, we recommend using a credit card, as the fees may be higher than buying online.
