E-Pass compulsory if you want to travel to AP; here’s how to apply

Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh’s Director General of Police D Gautam Sawang announced that the emergency pass (e-pass) system that was in place during the nationwide lockdown last year, will be revived this year to enable people to enter the state to facilitate those who need to travel due to emergencies.

The DGP, along with Vijayawada city police commissioner Bathini Sreenivasulu and other senior police officials, inspected enforcement of extended curfew in the city on Sunday. 

Here’s how you can register for the e-pass :

Go to https://serviceonline.gov.in/ website register/login first and click on state-Andhra Pradesh. Out of the many services offered, please click on registration for E-pass (emergency pass)

The user/applicant must register his/her details (name, address, occupation, identity proof- driving license, Aadhar card and applicant’s picture).

The user must mention the travel details- one way or two ways and the reason for travel, including the type of transportation.
