On Passport application Forms

The recent changeover to the use of Bio-Metric Passports for Maltese citizens was a good step towards better and more modern means of identification at international ports and borders. A similar changeover is eagerly and patiently being awaited for national identity cards. I however disagree with the way passport applications for adults are formatted. When downloaded or photo-copied the details of the applicant are written on one loose page whereas the page endorsed by a recommender is also found loosely and doesn’t bear the name of the applicant.  This clearly looses the scope of the recommender’s  signature because loose papers can  be exchanged maliciously with anyone elses. At least a space for the name of the adult applicant has to be included on the same page filled by the recommender.
