Vijayawada to get new Passport Centre


The city is all set to get a new Passport centre in Ocotber this year. The central government has newly sanctioned 7 Passport Centres to our state yesterday. Vijayawada is going to have one of these centres in the state. Apart from Vijayawada, passport centres will also be setup in Nizamabad,Tirupathi,Vishakapatnam. Hyderabad will have 3 more passport centres in addition to the one presently operation in secunderabad.

    The new passport office is a welcome addition to the city as people from the city have been facing problems getting a passport in Hyderabad due to the long Queues daily. All the passport applicants from Krishna, Prakasham & Guntur Districts also can apply from the new passport office in the city without the need for applying from Hyderabad.

     The new passport centres have been set up on request of Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy's proposal to the external affairs ministry set up more passport centres in the state to reduce the heavy intake of applications in Hyderabad.
