The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has announced that due to the surge in demand for the 48-page passport and the challenges with the supply chain, it can only issue the 32-page booklets.
A statement from the Ministry says that all applicants who have applied for the 48-page booklets will instead be issued with the 32-page booklets.
It further added that the appropriate steps are being taken to refund monies to those who requested for the 48-page passports.
According to them, applicants who applied for the 48-page booklets do not need to submit another application for the available 32-page passport.
The conversion according to the ministry will be done at no further cost.
