The Department of Consular Affairs will stop its passport issuing service on Saturdays, effective immediately.
The department said its two-part trial run of offering weekend service had not attracted applicants over normal weekday hours. Instead, the department can use the weekend to service the passport printing machines, a highly technical and time consuming process.
This is the headquarters of the passport issuing service, but it will be open the public only from Monday to Friday from now on.
