Passport Collection Process:

  1. The applicant is required to hand over the original receipt (ICR) to collect the passport and he/she shall be present along with the ICR. In the event where the applicant is not present, he/she will have to send an original authorization letter along with the original ICR and a copy of identification for the bearer of the letter.
  2. In the event a photocopy of an ICR is presented; the passport will not be released to a third party and the applicant will be requested to be present to collect same in person, along with a letter stating the reason for the use of a photocopy instead of the original ICR.
  3. In the event the ICR is lost/misplaced; the applicant is required to be present for collection of the passport along with a letter to the effect of the lost ICR.

Third party collection of the passports will not be permitted, except in the following cases:

  • Immediate Family Member (i.e. Parents, Children, Siblings)  who applied with the rest of family memebrs
  • One member of a group collecting for the entire group
  • A person collecting on behalf of government officials if authorized on the government letter head or department
  • Representative of a company – original authorization letter on the letter head of the company and the official ID card

This procedure is to ensure the safe and secure return of documents to applicants.
