New passport renewal process in The Bahamas

Phase one of the new electronic passport renewal system in the Bahamas has begun.

The new E-passport service is available to Bahamians 18 years and over.

Persons seeking to renew their passport must apply for a “Qmatic Number” and they will be called when it’s their turn for renewal.

The new passport will have 25 pages and this is being done to reduce the need for frequent replacement.

The Bahamian Government has promised that the renewal process will be easier, faster and require fewer paper documents.
