Duplicate passports in lieu of lost / stolen
In case of loss of passport in Peru
or Bolivia, a duplicate passport is normally issued
only if the person is living abroad or plans to visit
other countries before returning to India. Otherwise,
an Emergency Certificate is issued, which permits the holder to return to India
In case the lost / stolen passport
has not been issued by this Embassy, the duplicate passport
issued will only be of short validity (1 year), which
has to be renewed to the original validity of the lost
passport subsequently after receiving clearance from
the original Passport Issuing Authority. This can take
up to 3 months. Alternatively, for persons on short
visits, the duplicate passport can be renewed directly
from the original Passport Issuing Authority.
