Vijayawada: A Regional Passport Office (RPO) would soon be opened in Vijayawada, the functional capital of Andhra Pradesh, Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu announced here on Sunday.

"Whenever I come here, people eagerly see what I bring (to the state). This time I brought an order from Sushma Swaraj (External Affairs Minister) for setting up the Regional Passport Office in Vijayawada," Venkaiah said addressing a meeting of women industrialists.

 

The RPO would initially function from Vijayawada and later shifted to Amaravati, the new Capital of AP. Vijayawada presently has a Passport Seva Kendra while the RPO is located in Secunderabad (in Telnagana).

Post the bifurcation, a separate RPO became a major requirement for AP as large number of people fly abroad from this region.
