Passport Application And Payment Goes Online

In an effort to decongest the Registrar-General’s office, Zimbabweans can now apply and make payments for the newly-introduced e-passport online.

This is a relief for Zimbabweans who had to go for long queues as the online passport application system is capable of serving 20 people per every 20 minutes.

The payments for the online passport services are not different from those that are paid if you visit the passport office in person, that is US$120 for an ordinary passport and US$220 for an emergency document.

Specifically for this development, an Express Passport Office Centre has since been opened at the Registrar-General’s Office in Harare.

The advantage with applying online is that the process of applying and collecting a passport can be done in 48 hours compared to seven days for those who apply in person.

As quoted by The Sunday Mail, the manager of the Express Passport Office Centre Mr Terence Mutemararo said:

“When the e-passports were launched last year, it was made clear that they will be two categories of applications: One with a seven-day turnaround which we started with and now we have introduced the Express Centre that issues passports in 48 hours from the time of applications.”

For the elderly, the disabled and those in need of urgent passports, the Express Passport Centre is considered convenient.

He added that:

It is capable of serving 20 people per every 20 minutes given the number of booths we have and the number of people serving inside. ”

Also on iHarare, one person was fatally shot after two Airforce of Zimbabwe (AFZ) soldiers based at Manyame Airbase reportedly abandoned their duty and went on a robbery mission.

Christopher Tafadzwa Charuma, the soldier who pulled the trigger, is currently in remand prison after he was denied bail by the High Court last Friday.
