Passport Fees Reduced; E-system Restored

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services says it has now completed restoration works of its electronic passport issuance system.

In a statement, Director General for the Department Brigadier General Kalumo retired says they expect to start printing of passports in Lilongwe this week before the exercise resumes across the country.

Spokesperson in the department Wellington Chiponde has confirmed the statement which further indicates that locals will now be required to pay K50 000 as fees for the e-passport, a fee that has been reduced from K90 000.

Recently, President Lazaraus Chakwera ordered the department to retrieve the system which was allegedly hacked by unknown people who were demanding a ransom from the government.
