You can easily create a Self-Sworn Affidavit using am22tech’s app. If you are okay with writing yourself, we have also provided the template for the affidavit.

Normally, the self-sworn affidavit is required by Indian Embassy to get your passport renewed.

The affidavit content is the same for all countries where you need to declare the time period of your stay outside India.

How to Create Self Sworn Affidavit Online

The app takes care of creating the PDF for you and sends you the properly filled Self Sworn affidavit to your email address securely.

It will only take 2 minutes to generate Affidavit.

A user log-in is required and the app will save your information to generate the affidavit again anytime later from any device including your iPhone, Android, or Samsung mobile.

#1 Enter Your Details

Enter your full name, select your Gender, and fill in your father’s name as per your current unexpired Indian passport.

The gender is used by the app to change the affidavit language to refer to ‘his/her‘ and make it unique for your case.

Enter your name, father's name and gender
Enter your name, father’s name and gender

You can click the ‘validate & save’ button to validate your data.

The app will flash an error if there are any missing fields to make sure you do not miss anything on the affidavit.

#2 Address

We strongly recommend providing your current foreign country address. It should be your current valid residential address outside India.

For example, people living in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, etc. should enter their current address that matches the address proof.

We have entered a sample New York address here:

#3 Date of Leaving India

The app considers the date of your leaving India as 5 years from today as the default date. This means that if you do not enter or select the actual date that left India, the app will assume it has been more than 5 years.

This affects the language on the affidavit. There is no need to worry even if you do not select the date as the Indian government just wants to make sure that you are living outside India for more than 5 years.

If you do select the actual date, the app will automatically calculate the years and days and will print on the affidavit PDF to make it easier for you.

Note that file is not allowed for download for security reasons.

The email also contains the instructions on next steps.

You can print the Self-sworn affidavit on plain white paper. There is no need for Indian stamp paper.
