KUALA LUMPUR – A total of 20 selected Passport Issuing Offices nationwide, apart from the Urban Transformation Centres, will operate seven days a week starting tomorrow in an effort to overcome congestion at Immigration counters.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said in addition, passport printing machines will also be added in offices with high visitor rates.

He said the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) passport office will also operate as a Passport Issuing Office for urgent and emergency cases other than normal applications.

“Another initial step that has also been taken is the improvement of the online appointment system, which will provide date and time as well as the queue number,” he said in a statement via his official Facebook page here last night.

According to Saifuddin, all the initial steps to overcome congestion at Immigration counters were decided at a special meeting this afternoon.
