VNGOP – The Ministry of Public Security just issued Circular 27/2007/TT-BCA (A11) instructing the issuance and revision of ordinary passports of Vietnamese citizens. Accordingly, those who urgently need passports can directly submit the applications and receive the results or mandate some agencies/organizations with legal status to do so.
