MRP office operates on the principle of live data capturing. Normally a biometric process takes no more than half an hour. However, sometimes due to technical reasons, processing of passports during an appointment can take up two hours. Your patience and cooperation is requested in such a scenario. Passports are printed in Pakistan and then sent to this Embassy. Therefore please do not book your flight without receiving passport from the Embassy.
