Passports are the main thing that must be prepared if we are going to go abroad. Passports are official documents that can be used as identification when we are abroad. Complete information about us is all in the passport. Like the country of origin of the passport holder, full name, photo, signature, place and date of birth, and other important information needed by other countries when we want to visit there.
So what is the process of making a passport? What office are we going to come to? Have to come to register directly or get online? here we will discuss in full about how to make a passport and the types of existing passports.
Immigration Office is an office for making or renewing a passport. For the queue now is to register through the application and online. Online registration every day has their own quota. Every day is divided into two sessions, morning and afternoon sessions, each session has a different quota. This makes it very easy for us, because we do not need to come directly to the immigration office to register, all registration systems are already online. We arrive at the time of our chosen session. So after we register online, we only come with the barcode we get on the online registration and the required documents. Let’s see how to make or extend a passport below:
Step One: Download the Passport Service Application Online
So the first step if we want to make or extend a passport is to download the application from the Immigration Directorate General of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, which is an Online Passport Service application that you can download on the Play Store for Android users or the App Store for iOS users. In this application we are required to register first. In the registration process, we will enter some data, namely NIK (Population Identification Number) that you can get from your KTP or KK, full name, username, password, date of birth, mobile phone number, gender, province, district / city, district and address according to ID card. After the registration process, we will be able to get a passport queue. Next we will search and choose which immigration office we choose to make or extend our passports. After that we will enter the data of the number of applicants (one time registration a maximum of 5 applicants entered), choose the date of arrival, choose the time of arrival (there are 2 sessions namely morning 08:00 to 12:00 and noon 13:00 to 16: 00 / 16:30), then after selecting the session, we will know the available quota at that session, enter the email and after the data entry process is complete we will get a booking code and barcode. Come according to the immigration office and time chosen.

Documents required to make or renew a passport are the same. The following are the required documents that need to be prepared:
