Passport Application: Whether you are going abroad for a holiday or for some work, it is important for you to have an updated passport. Not having a passport is becoming a big problem these days. With the increase in travel and tourism, opportunities for international jobs have opened up, so one should always be prepared to go abroad. As far as passport is concerned, many types of travel documents can be arranged for going abroad from India.

Ordinary passport i.e. the blue colored booklet available is for common citizens. After this a diplomatic passport is made. Indian diplomats and government officials i.e. IAS rank and IPS rank people use this passport. Diplomatic passport is maroon in colour. After this comes the official passport which is white in colour. If there is a government official or a person representing the government and he goes abroad for any official or government work, then he uses a white passport.

Apart from this, Emergency Certificate and Certificate of Identity can also be used by the government to go abroad. If you do not have a passport and there is an emergency, then this type of certificate can be used.
