ALL citizens who paid $53 to get an ordinary passport before the fees were raised to $253, are expected to pay the difference of $200 before their travel documents are processed.

This was announced Thursday by the Registrar General Clemence Masango during a tour of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Defence, Home Affairs and Security Services at Makombe Building in Harare.

Masango also told the MPs that the RG’s Office was at the moment only processing emergency passports due to limited consumables to clear the backlog for ordinary passports.

“At the moment, the $53 passports are on backlog and not being printed because their charges do not meet the current printing costs,” he said.
