Issuance Of E-Passports To Start This Week - Contractor

Garsu Paulis, the company that was contracted to issue e-passports in Zimbabwe has said the issuance of the passports will start this week.

The government launched the e-passport in a landmark development that saw Garsu Paulis getting the nod to produce modern passports that comply with global aviation benchmarks.

ZBC News reports that all is in place at the Registrar General Offices with the new e-passport equipment and the system now in place ahead of the issuance of new passports set to begin at the end of the week.

The publication visited Garsu Pasaulis offices at the Immigration Department in Harare this Monday and witnessed workers undergoing training to mark the changeover to the new system. Said Chukkri Assal Managing Director Garsu Pasaulis:

The change over from the old to the new system requires extensive training of personnel and we are happy that we have completed the process as you can see our workers are being educated by the trainers on how the system works.

We are going to start issuing the passports within the next 3 days and training of staff was key to come up with a seamless process.

Garsu Pasaulis will establish similar infrastructure and systems in all the country’s provinces and Bulawayo is next on the list as the national programme begins.

EVERY NEW OPERATION OR METHOD IS VIEWED WITH SUSPICION. SO DO GARSU PAULIS COMPANY WHICH IS GOING TO PRODUCE E PASSPORTS.

WITH THE PRESENT SYSTEM, WE HAD THREEFOLD PROBLEMS NAMELY,

{1} CORRUPTION HAD ROOTED ITSELF IN THE PROCESSES OF THE PASSPORTS WITH REGISTRAR GENERAL STAFF DEMANDING KICKBACKS.

{2} LONG AND WINDING QUEUES FORMED EVERY MORNING AT EACH REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE IN THE COUNTRY. IN BIG CITIES PEOPLE SLEPT IN QUEUES.

{3} HAVING SUCCEEDED IN APPLYING FOR THE PASSPORT ONE ENDURES 2 TO 3 WAITING TO COLLECT THE NEW PASSPORT.

THE MANAGING DIRECTOR, MR CHUKKRI ASSAL, PROMISES THAT ALL THESE HASSLES ARE A THING OF THE PAST.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AWAITS GARSU PAULIS TO COMMENCE WORK WITH ABATED BREATH.
