Shipment delays leave Immigration Office short of materials to print passports


The Central Immigration and Passport Office on Thursday acknowledged that there have been unusual delays in the issuance of passports.

In a statement, Police Headquarters said the Passport Office continues to provide passport and other immigration document services and is attempting to do so within the normal time frame of five working days.

The COVID-19 Pandemic and other recent world events have, however, caused the disruption of countless supply chains.

“The Guyana Police Force’s Central Immigration and Passport Office has been affected by this disruption in the supply chain of material,” the statement added.

The delayed shipment of materials is expected here in late August after which normalcy will prevail.

While the delay is inevitable, the Central Immigration and Passport Office says it remains unwavering in its commitment to work assiduously to ensure that things are back to normal in the shortest possible time.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.”
