Dominica Introduces Biometric Passports

Dominica is among the first Caribbean Island nation to introduce Biometric passports, allowing its citizens to travel more safely and efficiently.

Dominica’s Minister of Defense and the Interior, Rayburn Blackmoore announced that the initiative is being implemented as part of a program to upgrade the island’s border control system.

The increased protection with the help of a microchip containing the holder’s personal information will prevent from counterfeiting and misuse of the passport.

Investors already having Dominica citizenship can apply for a replacement passport under general conditions for a small passport processing fee of EC$150 for 16 years and above, and for EC$75 for children under 16 years of age.
