Recently, the Federal Interior Minister, Rana Sanaullah posted a tweet, “The hassle-free e-passport facility is now available, so passports can be renewed online from anywhere without visiting the office.” After this announcement, the citizens of Pakistan can get online passport renewal services by sitting at home.
Online Passport Renewal System
This is a collaborative step by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and the Directorate of Passports. It aims to ease the renewal process for the citizens. They do not need to visit the offices and wait for hours in the queues. Rather the online passport renewal services allow the applicants to apply online, track the application, and get the passports at their doorsteps. Earlier the citizens had to go through a complicated process of passport renewal which was a big hassle. However, this innovative step will save time and replace hassle with comfort.
This online renewal service was only available for overseas Pakistanis via Online MRP Web Portal. But, this collaboration between NADRA and DG&IP will let Pakistani citizens renew their passports through a digitized system.
