Govt restores previous passport delivery times

ISLAMABAD: The federal government has put an end to the three-week holdup and reinstated the earlier passport delivery schedules.

According to information, the Director General of Immigration and Passports issued the order restoring the earlier delivery times for passports.
The letter states that the standard fee passport’s delivery time has been shortened from one month to ten days.

Fast track passports can now be provided in 2 days rather than 5 days, while the delivery time for urgent passports has been shortened from 10 to 4 days.

The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) centers will now include passport counters, per a directive given earlier by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to the relevant authorities.

The prime minister claimed, while presiding over a meeting on hassle-free access to passports and computerized national identity cards (CNICs), that the move would not only benefit the general population but would also ease the strain on the national exchequer.

To make the collaboration happen, he has requested NADRA and the Directorate General of Immigration and Passports to pool their resources.

All of the previously authorized new passport offices were to be set up as counters at the NADRA center, per Shehbaz Sharif’s directive.

Additionally, he gave instructions to increase the number of NADRA mobile vans that deliver services to CNIC applicants at their doorstep.
