Purpose? Had to renew my maid's passport
We were greeted with :
"Kami siap melayani anda dengan mudah, murah, cepat, aman, nyaman dan ramah"
So, here's my assessment on the whole process.
From the gate, we were ushered to the officer in charge of all the formulir. (forms). He took a look at my maid's passport and gave us the correct form, PLUS, he reminded me to photocopy IC majikan.
Form was very very simple - I think I only had to fill in ; Name, Sex, Date of Birth, Name & Address of Majikan, Name & Address of someone to contact back in Indo. No unnecessary information required. :)
Went to photocopy hubby's IC at the photocopy kiosk. The guy went ahead and photocopied the recent permit as well as front and back cover of Parmi's old passport.
There's also a photo booth in case you forgot to bring 4 passport photograph with red background. (He only charged RM10 for the 4 copies)
Then, went to the officer to take our number.
Process wise, we only had to submit our application , pay the guy and the passport will be ready on the same day.
Easy enough? I think so. :)
The fee for a 24 page passport id RM22.00
Is that cheap? Damn right, it's cheap.
Our turn was number 1441. They were currently serving number 1281. The time was at 11:27am. An hour later, they were serving 1376.
3 and a half hours? Not too bad, la..
What does this really mean? Peaceful as in nobody shouting? Well, it was aman, I guess..
Definitely nyaman. The waiting hall is air-conditioned!
All in all, we walked into the embassy's gate at 11am and walked out at 3pm. Four hours of my life was spent at the Indo Embassy that day.... Out of 5 maximum scoring, I rate them 4. Not bad, la huh?
