There's more to passport value

Published:Wednesday | June 3, 2015 | 6:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

In an article in The Sunday Gleaner, somebody compared the passport fees in several countries and concluded that the Jamaican fees were still cheaper than the rest. This may be true in absolute terms but not so in relative terms.

A proper comparison should take into account the relative per-capita incomes and the minimum wages in various countries. If such a comparison is done, the conclusion may be found to be incorrect.
