What is the Tamil translation for passport

If your passport is lost or stolen, it is the responsibility of the passport holder to notify the relevant authorities immediately in order to prevent the stolen passport from being misused for illegal business and a criminal charge of aiding and abetting a criminal offense against you can be charged.

1) Passport application: Form K (IM35)
2) For entering children in the passport: in addition to Form K (IM35), Form K (IM35).
3) Stolen or Lost Passport Complaint Form
4) Police loss or Theft notification
5) Required documents as described below under "How do I submit the application form".


Script-by-step instructions:

Download the Stolen or Lost Passsport Complaint Form from this website or obtain this form from www.immigration.gov.lk.
Report the loss or theft to the local police at your place of residence immediately in order to receive confirmation from them.
Submit the required documents to the nearest Sri Lankan diplomatic mission as described under "How do I submit the application form". Include the properly completed form for reporting a stolen or lost passport ("Stolen or Lost Passsport Complaint Form"), the police report of loss or theft, Form K for applying for a new passport and the relevant documents.
The Sri Lankan mission abroad will forward this application together with the details of the stolen and lost passport to the responsible Sri Lankan authority, the Department of Immigration & Emigration.

How do I submit the application form:

Applicants must submit their application in person to the Sri Lankan mission abroad. Applications received by post will not be accepted.
The photo and signature of the applicant can be checked by an employee of the diplomatic mission when the application is handed over in person. The application must be signed twice in the application boxes provided for this purpose in the presence of the consular officer.
It is necessary to submit all the necessary documents (see below), as the application may be delayed or the application rejected if it is incomplete.
The validity of a Sri Lankan passport can be extended up to a maximum of 10 years from the date of issue. After that, a passport is invalid and a new one must be applied for. Passports are issued by the Controller of Immigration & Emigration in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and NOT by a Sri Lankan diplomatic mission in the Federal Republic of Germany.
All passport applications that are accepted by a Sri Lankan diplomatic mission are sent to Colombo, where the machine-readable passports are issued. As soon as the new passport from Colombo arrives at the Sri Lankan diplomatic mission, it will be forwarded to the applicant immediately. The processing time is approximately three months if the documents attached by the applicant are in order. If this is not the case and the competent authority in Sri Lanka requires more information, the processing time may be longer.
To ensure efficient processing of the applications, the Sri Lankan diplomatic mission asks you for your cooperation, i.e. submitting all required information and documents with the application. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
