When asked about the closure of passport reissuance at foreign missions, he said, “We actually don’t issue passports. It is a matter of the passport office and the home ministry. They have informed us that steps have been taken to resolve the problem.”
Abdul Momen said they are discussing with the authorities concerned for a long time to fix the issue.
"We are aware that many Bangladeshi migrants abroad are not getting their passports in time due to printing problems," the minister added.
