Passport Office in MyanmarMyanmar Passport Office
New passport office opened in the state of Chin
This year, a new office for the issue of a Myanmar passport was opened in Hakha, Chin State. According to one of the Chinese authorities, the opening of the Myanmar Passport issuing office (section) took place in the Chinese capitol today. Capt. San Oo, senior police officer, said the request would be 25,000 Kyats and that it would take about 10 working day to issue a passport.
The new office would offer the best service to the locals. It aims to lower the costs of housing, meals and travelling, as the inhabitants of Chin State previously had to go to Mandalay or Rangoon to obtain their passes.
A new passport office was set up in Mandalay last July, as Rangoon was the only place where people could request their passes.
