Easier Myanmar's Passports

Myanmar recently opened passport offices in 15 regions and states in addition to the existing offices in Yangon and Mandalay.

The government’s official media, New Light of Myanmar, reported new offices opened in Hpa-An, Kayin State 2 January on the premises of the Police Special Branch.

Passport offices have also been set up in 15 regions and states, the report said.

The new centre will cut the cost of applying for a passport as previously citizens living in the provinces had to travel to Yangon or Mandalay to obtain a passport. The Mandalay passport office opened last July.

An eligible citizen can get a passport within two weeks instead of 21 days in the past. It costs US$25.

In the past, obtaining or renewing a passport was a complex procedure and many applications were arbitrarily rejected.

The actual passport is only five pages down from a previous 14 pages. Officials claimed they reduced the pages to speed up the process without explaining how a smaller passport accomplished that feat.
