Ugandans Without Urgent Travels Called On to Postpone Passport Processing

By Simon Abaho

The ministry of Internal Affairs Spokesperson Simon Peter Mundeyi has urged Ugandans with no urgent travel plans to delay processing passports.

According to Mundeyi, the move aims to reduce on the long queues at the Passport Office in Kyambogo.

The Internal Affairs mouthpiece made these remarks while addressing journalists on Monday, during the joint security press conference at the Naguru Police headquarters.

“I call upon Ugandans who don’t have a journey to postpone processing passports to avoid long queues,” Mundeyi said.

Mundeyi also Ugandans to stop trekking from other regions to process passports in Kampala, saying that they should use regional offices in their areas.

“Passports issued in the regional passport centres are not inferior. If you are in Western, utilise Mbarara office, those in East, utilise Mbale and Jinja that are coming up and those in Northern, Gulu,” Mundeyi added.

His comments come at a time when several stakeholders are complaining over the long queues at the Passports Office, despite several changes in the immigrations department.
