After five months of hiatus in passport distribution services due to ‘technical issues’, the process resumed on Wednesday.
According to Mawlavi Abdul Haseeb Karim, General Director of the passport Department, the technical problems have been resolved, and the distribution of passports will resume.
Mr Karim stated earlier last week that everyone should have access to a passport and that the Central Passport Department is dedicated to offering all of the necessary services for citizens.
He said that the relevant department is making every effort to resolve the existing issues and increase the number of passports that can be granted to individuals all throughout the country.
Additionally, he stated that all provinces including Kabul would offer online passport registration.
Moreover, an official said that efforts had been doubled to increase the distribution of passports to 10,000 copies daily.
Earlier, the Kabul Central Passport Department, in a press conference, had announced that passport issuing would resume across the country on Wednesday.
