Hello Experts!

Does the VFS Courier service in Bangalore, India accept passport (Received & Delivered) from 3rd person?

Precisely my mother has a status update in her online application to send Passport. She is now traveling and thus left the Passport at home.

My question is that can my sister who is at the same home can handover the passport to the Bluedart Courier person or my mother should be mandatorily present in-person for this process completion? If my mother's presence is not required are there any special documentation required like letter of authorization, etc to be signed and given to my sister?

Please note that my sister is not a Representative of my mother's Visitor Visa application case.

I tried calling the VFS and sent many emails and created tickets but no reply at all.

Appreciate your help here.

Thank you.
