THE Immigration and National Registration Depart-ment (INRD) informed the public yesterday that the Travel Document Division at its headquarters in Jalan Menteri Besar, Bandar Seri Begawan will extend its services to the public on Fridays starting December 8 until December 29, 2017 from 8.15am to 11am.

This is in view of the huge inflow of passport applications during the school holiday season, the department said in a statement, advising people who intend to travel abroad to plan early and make or renew passports in advance to avoid last minute hassles.

The department also advised the public to ensure that their travel documents are in good condition and still have at least six months’ validity and adequate empty pages.
