The fees for the new e-passports have increased due to the services provided.
Immigration Director Nemani Vuniwaqa says the advancements and the validity of the travel document is another reason for the increase.
Vuniwaqa says the book is also valid for 10 years and has 64 pages.
“When you benchmark it with other countries some passports are only 32 pages but the fee is even more than what Fiji is offering. We are not saying we are the same as the other countries but that level of e-passports.”
Vuniwaqa adds the new passport also has extra security features.
He adds the security features will make it much more difficult for people to enter the country illegally.
