You can get your passport in just 45 minutes, compared to an hour previously, using the ‘MyOnline Passport’ kiosk at the Immigration Department in Selangor.
The facility is available at the Immigration Department’s office in Urban Transformation Center (UTC).
The move is in line with the increase in the number of passport applications, which is can reach 2,900 a day and up to 60,000 a month.

The Immigration Department said in a statement that the initiative aligns with the progress and development of today’s digital world.
The facility is available to applicants aged 13 years and above and is not applying for passports for the first time, except for senior citizens and people with disabilities (OKU).
It is also for individuals whose passport is lost or damaged and students aged 21 and under who wish to continue their study abroad.
The Immigration Department said it would roll out the service to all states.
Hopefully, it would reduce the constant complaints of long lines and waiting times at the Immigration Department offices.
