Head of the St. Andrew Central Police, Senior Superintendent Fitz Bailey says operations at the head office of the Passport Immigration and Citizenship Agency, PICA have been smooth today.

Hundreds of persons flooded the office on Constant Spring Road in St. Andrew, as they sought to have their passports processed before higher fees take effect.

The fee increase was set for May 26 but has been pushed back to June 1 in the face of public anger.

Speaking on Nationwide This Morning, SSP Bailey says there was no repeat of yesterday’s chaotic scenes where persons jostled for position in long lines, tying to get their applications processed.

SSP Bailey says now that the quota system has been abandoned by PICA, operations should proceed normally.
