IMPHAL, March 31 � With the opening of the Passport Seva Kendra office here on Tuesday, Manipur has been included in the Passport Seva Kendra Map of the country.

The office of the Passport Seva Kendra at the Old Assembly Complex in Imphal was inaugurated by Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam, Lok Sabha MP Thangso Baite, Rajya Sabha MP Abdul Salam, Chief Secretary PC Lawmkunga and officials from the Union Ministry of External Affairs.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister appreciated the initiative of the Ministry of External Affairs for opening a Passport Seva Kendra in Imphal. �This will help the people of Manipur to have the opportunity to apply their passports here in Imphal, instead of going to Guwahati.�

Urging the Union Ministry of External Affairs officials to speed up the process to open a �Visa on Arrival� facility in Manipur, Ibobi informed that all the equipment and infrastructure for the �Visa on Arrival� facility are already present at the Imphal International Airport and Moreh, a commercial town bordering Myanmar.

He added that Manipur is now one of the major emerging destinations of South Asia. Many tourists from ASEAN countries want to visit Manipur. Once the �Visa on Arrival� facility comes up in the State the inflow of foreign tourists will increase.

Gaikhangam said that the opening of the Passport Seva Kendra in Imphal means the State is now closer to the rest of the world. This initiative is a much awaited dream come true for the people of Manipur.

In his keynote-cum-welcome address in the inaugural function, Joint Secretary of Central Passport Organisation Muktesh K Pradeshi informed that similar Passport Seva Kendras will also be opened in Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim soon.

He said around 85,000 individuals in the North-east are holding passports. The number will cross one lakh within a few months. He added that if the police verification process is improved in the State, the passport can be obtained within a month from the date of submitting the application. Regional Passport Officer of Guwahati T Ajungla Jamir offered the vote of thanks in the day�s function which was attended by Ministers and MLAs of the State.
