New Passport Fee Structure Unveiled in Pakistan – February 2024 Update

Lahore: In its ongoing efforts to facilitate citizens’ international travel and ensure their safety abroad, the government of Pakistan has introduced an updated fee structure for passport issuance.

A valid Pakistan passport serves as more than just a travel document; it also provides essential protection and assistance from diplomatic and consular representatives while citizens are in foreign countries. Recognized as the sole proof of identity abroad, the passport is indispensable for Pakistani travelers worldwide.

Under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Interior, the Directorate General of Immigration & Passports is entrusted with the responsibility of processing passport applications and issuing passports to eligible citizens. For those residing in Pakistan, the Regional Passport Offices serve as the primary point of application for obtaining travel documents.

Step-by-Step Application Process:

Applicants visiting Regional Passport Offices undergo a systematic process to obtain the new Machine Readable Passport (MRP). The following steps outline the procedure:

  1. Arrival and Service Counter: Applicants begin by approaching the Customer Service Counter.
  2. Fee Verification and Documentation: This step involves verifying fees, capturing photographs, and issuing tokens for processing.
  3. Biometrics/Fingerprint Capture: Applicants provide biometric data, including fingerprints.
  4. Data Entry: Vital applicant information is entered into the system.
  5. Verification: Office records, including the Exit Control List (ECL) and Black List (BL), are checked for verification.
  6. Interview and Decision: Assistant Directors conduct interviews and make decisions regarding passport issuance.
  7. Passport Collection: Successful applicants collect their passports upon completion of the process.
