IMMIGRATION services have been brought closer to the people of Caumatalevu.

The Immigration Department opened its office in Labasa this week.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu yesterday said the new office would also assist visitors with visa issues when entering Fiji.

He said people could also apply for their passports from the office instead of travelling to Suva.

"The initiative is in line with government's intention of bringing excellent services to the doorsteps of the ordinary Fijians."

"Right now, we are still trying to secure quarters for the immigration officials from Suva who will be posted here," he said.

"We are currently making arrangements for this and hopefully, we get this sorted sometime soon."

Mr Bolalevu said people now did not have to travel all the way to Savusavu or Suva for their overseas travel dealings.

"This is another milestone for us and we are happy to be offering these kinds of services to the people.

"They will now save their bus, plane or boat fares because they can now access the office in Labasa."

The office is located at Ratu Raobe building in the heart of the town.
