PASSPORT SERVICES


PUBLIC NOTICE

Following numerous challenges faced by users from overseas (Diaspora) passport applicants, while using the newly introduced online application through the e-Citizen portal, the government has suspended the service temporarily to allow for corrective measures to be put in place. Applicants are therefore advised to revert to the previous application system (manual) until further notice.

Further, all passport applicants from overseas including those who applied online will be issued with the old type passport. We will keep updating you on this process whenever there is any development.
