PETALING JAYA - The days of lining up for a number and queueing up to renew your passport may soon be over. Everything can be done online under an extensive revamp of the Im­­migration Department's My Im­­migration System.

The revamp, to be implemented by next year, promises to cut the crowds at Immigration counters, making the holiday rush for passports a thing of the past.

Immigration director-general Datuk Alias Ahmad said the online passport renewal would allow citizens to collect the travel document at any of the department's branches nationwide after it had been processed online and paid for via credit card.

They can even collect it at the KL International Airport before proceeding to check in for their flight.
