Hey,

Immigration & Passport Authority gives out passports really quickly if you pay them the "urgent" fee.

Is it that much time (20 to 25 days) with NORMAL FEE ? or the URGENT PROCESSING ? I got my Passport in 4 working days with URGENT PROCESSING FEE (PKR 5,000) from DGIP Lahore's office.

yeah...nowadays it is taking longer even for the urgent passport process since they are currently shifting to a new system and are making improvements...they are already done with the ID card up-gradation and are now doing the same with the passports... i guess if your brothers passport has expired then he is stuck here till he gets it renewed....
my suggestion is that he should go ahead and apply for it unless he has a contact in hire up who can get it processed quickly for him as an exception.
cheers

I did get my passport within a week on 'urgent' basis. So yes, it's possible.
