    Its no use having all these features when our passport is not given free travel entry into a majority of countries. Maybe they should concentrate more on that than all these fancy schmancy stuff. If not, its just an expensive piece of toilet paper.

    Now now, this question of visa on arrival should be handled and negotiated by our Honorable foreign service and the the Hon minister of foreign affairs, but there too busy making money and living the high life and enjoying the perks that the job at hand is forgotten. Now they simply cant remember why they where assigned that job and what it entails. I rest my case.

    Another money spinner for the person who is behind. Every government changed the Passports, Drivers Licenses to receive a benefit
