    Re: The processing time for passport application at Penang Immigration Office is indi

    Yes, Scott, you have written it correctly (except that I must always be capitalised).


    It's not clear what the dash indicates. There are three possibilities:

    1) The processing time at Penang was not known at the time of writing;

    2) The processing time at Penang is less than one month (though this could have been shown as <1);

    3) The Penang immigration office does not process passport applications.

    My guess is that 3 is the correct meaning.
