Home Affairs, Cultural and Heritage Minister Kazembe Kazembe says there is need to raise passport charges in line with the inter-bank rate to enable the registrar general's office import consumables required in the production of the travel documents.

He made the remarks after a familiarization tour of the passport office today.

Currently an ordinary passport costs $53 while an emergency passport fetches $253. The registrar-general's office, which has a capacity of producing 4600 passports a day is making only 2000 daily.
