The users can also search for a passport seva kendra (PSK) or district passport cell (DPC) in a district, wherein a passport application is to be submitted. This can also be searched on the basis of the city/area PIN code. For certain states and districts, users can search for their local police stations as well. Citizens, residing overseas who apply for a passport service in Indian missions or posts abroad, can also utilize this facility to search address and other relevant information. The "fee calculator" feature of the application also enables users to find out the applicable fee, based on the service and mode of submission.

Umesh Bhambri, a resident of Civil Lines, said, "Though the online passport facility was a boon for the people, it was not always easy to connect to the passport website due to the logging rush. However, now this application would help us connect easily and know about the status of the passport with just a few clicks." Nina Mundi, a resident of Gill Chowk, said, "Nowadays, people are crazy about buying the windows and iOS phones besides androids. The passport app on these phones, too, would help many now, as connecting over the phone is easier than connecting to a laptop."
