The Immigration office has today clarified on Passport application requirements after netizens asked hard questions.
On the 1st of January,the Immigration department highlighted the following as the requirements for a new e-Passport application .
-Original ID and a copy
– Original Birth certificate and a copy.
-Recommender ID copy
-Online filled forms
-3 Invoices –
3 passport size photos
