A new method is being introduced for renewing passports from today.
The Immigration and Emigration Department said that owners of passports belonging to M and N categories will be able to renew their passports under this method. According to the current practice when renewing a passport, a set of documents has to be produced similar to obtaining a passport. Under the new system Controller of Immigration and Emigration W.A.C. Perera said applicants should submit only the name, date of birth, identity card number and a passport size photograph.
