Among the new markets for PASSPORT APPROVED are RADIO CAIRO/EGYPT, RADIO BAHRAIN, 93.9FM IQ/COSTA RICA, SATELLITE 95.5FM/EL SALVADOR, STAR FM/ZIMBABWE, KISS FM/TANZANIA, XFM/MALTA, CHOICE FM/GUAM as well as stations in MALAWI, MOZAMBIQUE, WESTERN SOMOA, UGANDA, ZAMBIA, ARUBA, BONAIRE, GUATEMALA and HONDURAS.

In addition, the program was also added to the weekly programming lineup on WZRH/NEW ORLEANS, SPIRIT-FM/HELSINKI, FINLAND and KSKI/TWIN FALLS, ID.
PASSPORT APPROVED has also recently been launched and is featured on the homepage of SAAVN—ONE, an INDIAN and ASIAN streaming service.
Host/PD SAT BISLA said, “It’s incredibly inspiring and humbling to see the phenomenal response to PASSPORT APPROVED. Many of our affiliates have seen a strong increase in ratings, research and audience reaction from the PASSPORT APPROVED program. It’s also been fantastic to see so many artists getting massive breaks from being featured on the show and our radio affiliates being there ‘first’ with us, to unveil the most promising new international talent before they break elsewhere."
