Information on the delay in the production of passports
The High Commission of the Republic of Cameroon in South Africa brings to the attention of the public information from the General Delegation for National Security in Yaounde on the main reasons for the delay in the production of passports.
They are as follows:
1. The transfer of the production of passports by the former service provider to another company in the middle of 2019 which obstructed the production of 250 000 new passport booklets ordered.
2. Ongoing audit of the previous company responsible for the production of passports.
3. Evaluation by government of the new service provider’s capacity to produce passports in accordance with specifications and characteristics indicated.
However, it should be noted that 5528 passports of the diaspora were produced on the 13th of March 2020 and intensive efforts have been put in place for more passports to be produced in the near future.
In view of finding a lasting solution to this problem, the Head of State has authorised that negotiations begin with other service providers who can introduce new and more reliable systems for the production of passports.
The High Commission counts on the good understanding of all.
