Mauritanians make biometric passports compulsory

Nouakchott, Mauritania (PANA) - Mauritanians can only travel outside the country with new biometric passports, as the former passports are no longer valid, PANA reported Thursday.

The issuance of the biometric passports was launched 6 May 2011.

Several Mauritanians who tried to use the old passports to travel out of the country were disallowed at the Nouakchott airport Wednesday.

Many of them were heard complaining they were not informed on time about the new measure.
