See press release below:

The Central Immigration and Passport Office is reminding the general public that persons residing in Regions 6 (East Berbice-Corentyne) and 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) can now make applications for and uplift their passports at the Immigration and Passport Office in the respective Region.

However, passport applications will be accepted and processed from persons not actually residing in Regions 6 and 10, but who do so in close proximity, and are desirous of transacting their passport applications at the Passport Office in Region 6 or Region 10.

The Immigration and Passport Office in Region 6 is located at Garrison Road, Fort Canje, Berbice; and the Office in Region 10 is at 227 Independence Avenue, Mackenzie, Linden.

At both Immigration and Passport Offices, passport applications will be accepted from 0700h. to 1200h. and passports will be issued from 0900h. to 1100h. and from 1300h. to 1500h. on working days.

The general public is also reminded that the following documents are required when applying for a new passport for reason of a “filled” or expired passport, or a change of name by way of marriage, divorce or deed poll:

Completed application form, old passport, one passport size Photograph, $6000.00 application fee; and in the case of persons doing a name change – the original and a photocopy of the name change document such as Deed Poll, Marriage Certificate or Divorce Absolute.

Persons applying for a passport for the first time, or who may be applying to replace a lost or misplaced passport, will need to have their National Identification Card in their possession when making such application.

In the event that they do not have a National Identification Card such a person’s parent, a sibling who is eighteen (18) years or older, or legally married spouse can identify him or her. Similarly, the person who recommended the applicant can also identify him or her.

On all occasions, the person identifying the applicant must be in possession of his or her National Identification Card and Birth Certificate and accompany the applicant to the Immigration and Passport Office where the identification process will be conducted in the presence of the Immigration Officials.
