Somaliland to issue passport

The Somaliland minister of interior and information and the state minister for foreign affairs this evening held a press conference at the office of the minister of information and disclosed that citizens of Somaliland will now travel abroad using the Somaliland passport with effect from 19th September.

The ministers, Ahmad Shambir Sultan and Ali Muhammad Waran-Adeh, explained that the Somaliland cabinet had approved the decision. From tomorrow, citizens of Somaliland can apply for and travel with the new Somaliland national passport -a clear proof that Somalilanders have nothing to do with Somalia.

The ministers further said some countries had already recognized the Somaliland passport and in this regard a Somaliland delegation led by President Muhammad Ibrahim Egal, would on Wednesday, 20th September, travel to Ethiopia, using the new Somaliland passport. In their concluding statement, the ministers gave guidelines on how, when, and where the citizens could obtain the new passport.
