He stated that the service is one of several amenities that will be introduced in the coming months and that it would allow millions of residents to pay their taxes without having to wait in line at banks.
It should be noted that the software is accessible through both the Apple Store and the Play Store. Additionally, using PayMaster on the DGIP website, people may pay their passport costs.
The online payment option was formerly offered for Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and Lahore, and Karachi was supposed to get it this month. Prior to its intended introduction in the financial capital, the Ministry has activated it across the whole nation.
After successfully paying the price for the online process, people will get notifications through email and a short messaging service (SMS), which they must present as proof at the passport office.
