Cheaper Malaysian Passports

I came across this very interesting headline today, where the minister-in-charge announced that 'infrequent travellers can now opt for an alternative international Malaysian passport'.

This is very good news. Valid for two years, it will now cost only RM100 compared to the minimum RM300 that we have to pay for a 32 page-passport, which I've always thought it was too expensive. The 'savings' can always go towards a nice, little domestic holiday.

I wonder whether there's any qualifying criteria?

And I hope it will be further reduced before my passport needs renewing by end of 2010 :)

  1. This is good news indeed! I wonder if the RM100 passport is a 32-page as well?
