This morning I took my girl to the Immigration Department to renew her passport which is going to expire next month. I need to get her passport done as we will be visiting Singapore soon.
When we reached there, I filled in the form and then we got the number ready. By the way, the kiosk was not working. So we had to wait for our number which was about 50 in waiting.
But the queue was fast. In less than an hour, we were being serviced. First thing that the officer asked was my girl's birth certificate. I didn't bring along. I though that her ic would just suffice. The officer replied that she's not yet 18.
So she asked for my ic. Unfortunately, I just brought my driving license. She refused to carry on with the process. She asked us to come back to see her with the required documents.
Later in the evening, we went again to the Immigration Department. All the needed documents were there, the officer just needed to take my girl's thumb print. Been trying to get a clear image of her thumb prints but it was not successful. Many times were tried. The officer even used the tissue to dab her thumb dry. But it just wouldn't work!
We had to go to the ic department to get the microchip data of my girl's ic printed. Waited for a short while and we went back to the Immigration Department.
Soon the process was completed and we could only collect the passport tomorrow as it's almost closing time.
I was surprised as I thought they closed for the weekend. But no, they are even working on Sundays..
