All approved applicants will be issued with new minister’s permits, which will be valid until December 31.

Existing registration cards will be updated with a sticker indicating the new date of expiry.

In the instances where registration cards have been lost, stolen or mutilated, new cards will only be issued upon completion of the relevant statutory declaration and payment of a replacement fee of $500.

Registrants will be advised on the ministry’s website when their minister’s permits are ready for collection.

A list of Minister’s Permits numbers will be posted to the Ministry of National Security’s website and social media pages, indicating the scheduled dates when persons holding those card numbers must visit the relevant Immigration office, the release stated.
