Passport Delivery at the given address

Muhammad Rizwan: I have been searching for this information all over the internet but couldn’t find a way to track the shipment as Passport Department do not reply timely. In the website, still application is in the process, an online tracking system of passport website, the message comes, token information is not available. When I sent emails to the email ID’s on the website, there was not a single reply in last one-week time. Finally, today I received my passport and tried searching through DHL website with the above procedure, and found that this is the only way to get to know about the shipment. For all those, who want to track the passport after Passport Department hand over our passport to courier company. Normally, the email comes to informing passport application has been approved. After that day, you can track the shipment by following below:

Open DHL website with this link http://www.dhl.com.pk/en/express/tracking/shippers_reference.html

In Shipper’s reference, write your Passport Application Tracking ID

In Date Range for Shipment – From, put the date of your application approval, or tentatively, enter the date of your application submission here.

In Date Range for Shipment – To, leave it same as of today’s date.

Select the country of your residence (International Destination where you selected your passport delivery, e.g. Saudi Arabia, UAE etc.)

Then click “Track”

You will get the result, if the passport is already shipped, you will get to know its updated status. If not, then that means passport has yet not been dispatched from DHL Islamabad. I received my passport today in the office, but I have not received any email regarding delivery. The last email received was, application approved, which was on 13 March, and today after receiving the package, I came to know that DHL processed it on 15 March. Means in these two days, the passport was printed and handed over to DHL for delivery. Hope this helps for those seeking information regarding delivery.

    If I renew passport from office then it fee is is 3000 but if I renew my passport online then they will charge 2900 extra charges except of passport fee, still it’s expensive, it is not affordable to Labour class man.

    I’m trying to renew Online my Passport with the modification of Marital Status but I see there is ONLY renewal option available. When I select Yes to the Modification Question at the first page, they asked me to go Passport Office.

    As you know situation in Passport Office of Long queues problem etc., I just want to avoid that.

    My Question is that can I do modify inside the Renewal application ??
    If not so when this feature is coming to online application as I’ve already done same for my Online ID Card and that was very very helpful.

  • Muhammad Faizan

    HASEEB BROTHER! i am also having the same problem but i have no idea how their system works. i tried to call their office in Islamabad but nobody received it. it is very frustrated i will update you if i get any other information regarding modification.
    please let me know if you have any update

    my email address is [email protected]

  • Haseeb Ali

    Hi Faizan,

    I received below replies from the Passport Office via email:

    “This service is only for renewal of passport. You cannot modify anything so you must apply in Modification category by visiting your nearest passport issuing mission”

    And I asked him when the Modification feature will be available So he replied: “It is not final yet but we can hope for the best.”

    Customs and Pacakge had letter to collect from Saudi Airport Customs
    5. 17-1-2017 Visited Airport Customs in Saudi Terminal, He said Passport sent to
    Rehab Branch. Get REFERENCE number (Raqam Isdar) from the officer. Came to Rehab Branch the guy gave another REFERENCE number and ask to go to Shumaisi.
    6. 18-1-2017 Went to Shumaisi Building 5 (on makkah highway). Need to go Itisalat Dept. Show him the receipt you got from Rehab Branch. The guy will write a reference number and ask you to go see another officer.

    7. 31-1-2017 Passport collected from Shumaisi.

  • Muhammad Asif

    Dear members,
    My passport has expired and I’ve to make passport for my newborn daughter. Pakistani Consulate team is visiting my city on 19/20 of May and I am travelling on 14th of June. I want to know whether consulate team collect data for computerized passport? If yes, how many days they take to deliver passport? As my passport is expired, can I get passport for my daughter? If I apply online how many days they will take to deliver my passport? Will they issue manual or computerized passport for my daughter? I’ll be really thankful if you provide me all the details.

  • Muhammad Rizwan

    You can make your renewal online. Since you are travelling in june, so even if you apply by today under normal priority, you will surely get it in any country you are.

    For your newborn daughter, you can’t make it since it is only for renewal of passports of overseas pakistanis. For newborn, you need to go to visit embassy and apply as normal/urgent at earliest so that you can get it soon.

  • Atif

    I’ve applied for passport renewal online on 18th April and got approval email on 25th April. I have selected the passport to be delivered to Jeddah consulate. Now when I check the status through the account where I submitted application, it still says ‘In process’. The passport tracking site says that Tracking number is invalid.
    I understand that home delivery can be tracked using DHL website but does anyone know how to track delivery of passport online for which consulate delivery is selected? Jeddah is far off from my place and can’t visit them frequently to just ask the if the passport is ready for collection or not.

  • Muhammad Rizwan

    Passport site tracking link will never give you the required result. That is actually not working, not operational, always give you that token no is invalid.

    In online account, it will remain in process for looooong time, for me, my passport was delivered in March and till date, online application status is: “In Process”

    You can call jeddah consulate, i hope that they should tell you this information.
