Please help me to re-issue my passport on Tatkal.

My Indian passport is expiring few weeks, I have planned to go to India and I am having Advance Parole for travel. Due to not having 3 months of validity of passport, I cannot get the transit visa for German.

And if I need to get a passport on Tatkal , seems to be that only for emergency.
What all are the category that Indian embassy will consider as emergency, Please share your experience.

Thanks in Advance for information.

I called the German Consulate of Atlanta and I have talk to the visa officer, he said that I need a transit visa if I am going with Advance Parole.

These things take time so you need to be better prepared. If you really have to fly then cancel this ticket and fly KLM, emirates or Cathay. The cancellation and rebooking might land up costing same as applying for transit visa in hurry still with no guarantees that you will get it in time.

I am not sure about the German embassy timings but British consulate takes about a month on avg to issue the same. Plus you have to factor in getting docs ready and mailing time etc....and once you send in your passport there is no way you can change your mind later.

Above is just my advice.
