There’s been a delay in the arrival of a new batch of Fiji passports.

The passports were expected to arrive this month; however the Immigration Department says the batch will arrive at the end of May.

This was confirmed to FijiLive yesterday by the Immigration office.

A total of 17,500 passports were expected to arrive this month and was to cater for the backlog of citizens applying for passports.

The new batch was intended for those that have applied early this year from January to March will be the first to receive passports. 

So far, 700 new passports have been issued to people from the 4,000 applications they’ve received.

Immigration Director Major Nemani Vuniwaqa is yet to comment on the issue.
