The Passport Office and the Regional Passport Application Centres will no longer process manual passport applications effective Thursday, February 28, 2019.
This was disclosed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration in a statement issued January 28, 2019.
According to the Ministry, it is part of an initiative to migrate old manual passport application forms to the new manual downloadable passport application forms.
The old manual passport application forms were obtainable at selected banks upon payment but the new application process is done electronically.
The e-payment is either made via MTN Mobile Money, Vodafone Cash, MasterCard or Visa Card.
