Immigration Administration extends office hours

December 10, 2012

Immigration Administration officials will work on an extended schedule this week due to the large number of people applying for a passport this month.

Applicants can process their requests from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The extended hours continue through Thursday.

The measure aims to reduce waiting times and deliver more documents daily.

Immigration authorities estimate that the expanded schedule will allow them to serve some 120 people more than the daily average.

They also said that appointments for issuing or renewing residency permits scheduled for Jan. 2-4 will be rescheduled for the week of Dec. 17-21.

Immigration officials are currently locating all these people to inform them of the change in the dates.
