Finally… I got my passport renewed! I’ve been talking about it since beginning of the year and finally got it done now. Renewal is RM300 for 5 years.
My passport expired in 2007 and I only used it once way back in 2003. ONCE! Don’t you think it’s such a waste?
My target now is to use it more than once within these 5 years! At least 5 times. *cross my fingers*
In case you don’t know what you need to bring to renew your passport, here’s the list:
- Your expired passport
- 2 passport-sized photos (you can just go there and there is people offering such service, RM10 for 4 pieces of photos using Polaroid, I did mine there coz back then I did it outside, it got rejected and had to take new one at the staircase there. There will be people there that will ask you whether you got your photos already or not before u go into the building. So now I don’t bother to go other place to take. At least if it’s rejected, you can go down and “shoot” the photographer hahaha… It didn’t turn out nice but I don’t care as long that I can proceed with my renewal)
- 1 Photocopied IC
- Your Original IC
- RM300 if you are going for the 32 pages passport (credit/debit card accepted)
The form will cost you RM1. All in all, I spent almost one hour there. Went at 3pm and left at almost 4pm.
Passport will be ready within 24 hours. I will go collect it tomorrow. The department is really efficient, service is fast and they are very helpful.
So? Why I renew my passport? I’m planning to go to Singapore this August with my sis else it will be this December. Someone has promised me to bring me around and hunt for food ;p
After Singapore, where next? I don’t know yet… Hopefully Australia? Hong Kong? Go on cruise? We’ll see by then. Make more money first.
