Nepal launches mobile passport app


South Asian country Nepal has launched a new mobile app for passport applications.

The Department of Passports said in a press release that service seekers can download the mobile app ‘Nepal Passport’ in their cell phone and fill the passport application form before directly submitting it to the passport personalisation system of the DoP.

Once the form is submitted, the system automatically provides a bar code to the concerned applicants. The applicants should then contact the DoP or other live enrolment centres along with the bar code number for further processing.

Director General Lamsal, however, made it clear that applicants need to produce or submit a recommendation letter from their concerned District Administration Office while applying for passport through DoP or live enrolment centres.
