Need advise from someone who renewed Indian passport by mail at the San Francisco Indian Consulate.


My wife filled the application online and is ready to mail it, but there are questions regarding the supporting docs.
1)Proof of Residence:CGISF website shows applicable docs as Driving license or PG&E, Water or landline telephone bill displaying applicant’s address or
House Lease Agreement.
However in my wife's case, her name is not on any of the utility bills mentioned above and her Driving license has the old address.
Can we use the HUD-1 closing statement or home title as proof. Or can we use a insurance bill for this purpose? If not, please advise on other options.

2)Notarizing:I understand photo copies of any docs that I sent needs to be notarized.
Is there anything else that needs to be notarized?Your website says that "If applying by mail, Photocopy of all supporting documents including Photo should be notarized and attached to the application".
Do I need to notarize both the photos from page 1 and page 4? Please clarify.

1. Logically HUD document should work but again we are talking about Indian government so not sure. Insurance document might not work and I'm almost certain about it.

2. Notarizing: If the website says "Photocopy of all supporting documents including Photo should be notarized and attached to the application" then yes..

Not sure where you live but if it is driving distance then I suggest you go there.. Leave early and park on the north side of the street (it is free).

I renewed my passport from Indian SF consulate by mail. I had send my passport in Aug 2010 with Notarized supporting documents like photocopies of driving license and H1B. I did not notarize passport photos. I got my passport back after 5 weeks without any problem. Hope this helps.
