The Government of Sierra Leone through the immigration office has announced plans to establish immigration offices in every regional headquarters town as part of the decentralization scheme.

Alusine Kanneh, the Chief Immigration Officer revealed that this is part of the reforms he is currently working on at the immigration department.

This new reform will create a way to have offices in Bo, Kenema, and Makeni for the people to have access to apply for passports as that will help them from the challenge of travelling a long way to the nationโ€™s capital Freetown.

He maintained that the current post offices in the regional headquarters town will be reactivated as passport offices, adding that, they have engaged with the Sierra Leone Postal Services (SALPOST) for a working collaboration in helping the people in the country.

He said, to have a well-placed system that works to satisfy all Sierra Leoneans, they are working to get things done on the international stage, as there will soon be offices in Washington DC in the US and London for the processing of passports as that will also help Sierra Leoneans living in those places to get an easy access to their passports.
