The central Directorate of passports in Kabul announced that they have reactivated the website of the office on Saturday, April 9, and will accept online applications of applicants.

The process was supposed to resume on Tuesday last week but was delayed until Saturday due to problems.

This is the first time in almost four months that the central office of passports will resume the issuance of passports.

The office in a press release said that the website provides 24-hour services and has the capability of accepting 2,000 applications in a day.

The statement has asked the applicants to wait until the specific date specified by the website before proceeding with their biometric process.

It is still not clear whether the online services are available in provinces as well.

Rumors have it that not only Kabul’s original residents but people from other provinces can also apply for passports but it is not yet confirmed by officials.
