He Administrative Service of Identification, Migration and Immigration (Saime) has been evaluating the possibility of extend the validity of the passport of five to 10 years, just like the extension, what it would rise from two to five years, as he indicated Gustavo Vizcaíno, director of the institution.

In an interview offered to VTV, the representative of the identification body said that this measure is taken because of the studies they have been doing, so that They are "considering raising the ten-year passport's expiration and extending it to five."

He indicated that this process It is advanced and only a few details are missing. "That is already studied, almost completed, only the approval of a point of account is lacking" so that this measure can enter into force, without indicating approximate date.

Likewise, he advanced that measure of validity for a decade It will be for passports that are issued at the time that this new regulation is approved, on the other hand, those people who already own this credential They will only enjoy the benefit of the extended extension from two to five years.

"A new passport, which is going to have a ten year expiration, once the new regulations come into force. Those who already have their passport will be governed by the same transitional provision, will remain valid and will have a five-year extension to reach 10 ", assured Vizcaino.

The director of the Saime said that the extension option is used with the intention of "lengthen the life of the passport", because there are times when users do not use this document and at the time they are due they request a new notebook, which is why it considered it necessary to keep this option valid.
