Phasing out of Non-Machine Readable Passports (Non-MRP)
- This is to inform that the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has set a deadline of the 24th November 2015 for globally phasing out all non-Machine Readable Passports (MRPs). With effect from 25th November 2015 onwards, foreign Governments may deny visa or entry to any person travelling with a non-MRP Passport.
- All handwritten passports with pasted photos earlier issued by Government of India are considered non-MRP passports. All 20- year validity passports also fall in this category. The Government started issuing MRP passports since 2001 and all new Indian passports are ICAO-compliant MRP passports.
- In this connection, all Indian citizens residing in Namibia and holding handwritten passports as well as 20-year passports with validity beyond the 24th November 2015, should, therefore, apply for re-issue of passports and obtain MRP passports well before the deadline in order to avoid any inconvenience in obtaining foreign visa or immigration problem.
