The Foreign Minister described this occasion as a historic moment in Ghanaian passport management. He said that this achievement was the culmination of active intervention and reforms undertaken by the government to significantly change the operation of the passport office.
She said that the ministry has successfully implemented an online passport application system, thereby gradually eliminating the manual plan, which has been the norm so far. She said these interventions eliminated all the difficulties associated with obtaining passports, especially the turnaround time for transporting passports, document fraud and intermediaries, often referred to as “goro boys.”
Ms. Ayorkor Botchwey said that the ministry is also refurbishing all existing regional passport application centers (PACs) to make a facelift and improve service quality.
