(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian citizens wanting to get an ordinary passport from January 2016, will have to spend FCfa 75,000 in fees, against FCfa 50,000 previously. This is what indicates the 2016 Finance bill, currently under adoption by the Senate.
According to the Cameroonian authorities, this increase aims at providing the government with the necessary means to modernise and make this travel and identification document more secure.
This is the second time that passport fees are increased in Cameroon, during the last 15 years. The fees went progressively from FCfa 30,000 to 50,000 then 75,000.
