How to Pay Passport Fee Online Using Passport Fee ASAAN App:
The passport fee ASAAN app has been recently introduced. Directorate General Immigration and Passports (DGIP) said the purpose of this app is to provide a platform to millions of citizens so they can pay their fees without waiting in bank queues. This initiative is included in the list of recently launched projects by the government in the upcoming months.
Previously, this facility was only available for Islamabad, Lahore, and Rawalpindi and it’s about to be launched in Karachi soon. However, the government is working to activate the passport fee ASAAN app all across Pakistan. Regarding the online payment process updates, all the notifications will be sent via e-mail and text message. These notifications will be used as proof and should be shown to the concerned person at the passport office. The key features of the app include passport e-payment, application status, and complaints. The main point of this app is to generate a PSID number that can be used to pay the passport fee via any banking app.
