South Sudanese residents in Egypt may now apply for and get a new passport swiftly.
According to embassy authorities in Cairo, South Sudanese individuals residing in Egypt may now apply for and get a new passport within a short amount of time, according to the embassy.
Counselor Deng Gabriel said the move would alleviate pressure on South Sudanese in Egypt.
He emphasized that the applicant would get the new passport within a week.
Gabriel notes that in the past, it took at least six months for applicants to get a passport from the Egyptian embassy.
According to the Counselor, the Embassy’s immigration service has now established three computers to handle passport issuance.
This action was taken in response to reports that many South Sudanese living in Egypt are having difficulty renewing their passports.
“During the preceding era, we faced certain technical difficulties, as seen by the absence of passport booklets issued by the passport office in Juba, not the embassy,” Gabriel explained.
“Three passport-issuing machines have been delivered to the embassy in Cairo. Currently, the investigating and photographing will be done by the officer in charge.
“Previously, data was routed to Juba, but it has been centralized. In Juba, only printing is done, which is a progress in the process of streamlining processes for residents.
“We will make every effort to collect the passport as soon as it is printed in Juba. Concerning residents’ dread.
“The six-month timeframe is sufficient time to complete the renewal, and we will provide the paperwork to all parties before the period’s conclusion.”
