The Controller General of Immigration has taken a significant step in improving passport services across various regions. In a recent announcement, the Controller General has declared that the speed of issuing passports will be doubled in cities with established regional immigration offices.
This change aligns with the vision of President H.E. Dr Mohamed Muizzu and aims to enhance public service efficiency. The provinces benefitting from this initiative are Addu City, Kulhudhuffushi City, Fuvahmulah City, and Thinadhoo City. Notably, Addu City will now receive passports four days a week, up from the previous twice-a-week schedule. The other provinces will enjoy passport dispatch services twice a week, a notable increase from the prior once-a-week schedule.
This initiative aims to provide quicker access to passports for those collecting them from regional offices and expand this enhanced service across the country. This move is not only expected to streamline passport processing but also to demonstrate the new administration’s commitment to responsive and efficient public service.
