Foreign Affairs Ministry worried over 30,000 uncollected passports at various application centers
More than 30,000 printed Ghanaian passports are lying dormant at the Accra and Kumasi passport application centers as a result of the applicants’ unwillingness to pick them up.
Even though the passport office has communicated to the applicants that their passports are ready, they have still not collected them.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration under which the passport office operates has expressed concern over the growing number of uncollected printed passports.
In a statement dated Monday, January 30, 2023, the Ministry called on all passport applicants who are yet to collect their passports to visit their respective passport application centres to do so, as they would be required for future renewal.
