Somaliland introduces new E-Passport


Hargeisa , Sept 10 2014 -  Somaliland introduced today an e-passport which replaces the old Somaliland passport . The E- passport is of three categories : Service  passport , diplomatic passport  and regular passport.

The E-passport carries a chip with all the information about the holder. The passport  will immediately show the photo and details of the holder upon its presentation at the port of entries. This will eliminate any kind of forgeries or abuse of Somaliland passport by any unauthorized party. Somaliland also hopes that E-passport holders will have better chances of getting visas from international embassies.

The old Somaliland passport has been in use for more than a decade and  has been acceptable in more than 11 countries Worldwide. It is hoped that the new passport will further enhance Somaliland's quest for international recognition as the country builds its institutions.
Somaliland seceded from the rest of Somalia on May 18 1991 after a bloody struggle  against dedicator Siyad Barre that had killed tens of thousands of innocent Somalilanders. Somaliland has its national army,  police, own currency and national flag. The country has held two presidential  elections, three local government elections and two parliamentary elections since its Independence.
