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

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.
