Following a successful exercise to facilitate the collection of new e-passports at a Special Collection Centre, the Passport Office has announced that passport collection/Issuance Centre returns to the regular headquarters on Thompson Boulevard/University Drive, effective Monday 14th August.

Chief Passport Officer Superintendent Clarence Russell said: “The special collection exercise during the month of July and the first two weeks of August at the Anatol Rodgers Gymnasium has been an unqualified success, having issued well in excess of (3,000) Three Thousand e-passports to today’s date.

Darren Henfield for his assistance in publicizing the special collection exercise through his appeal to the public and noted “For those few who still have passports awaiting collection, the Ministry’s Passport Office on Thompson Boulevard is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“We additionally take this opportunity to expressly thank the Hon. Minister of Education” Mr. Russell continued, “as well as his Management and Staff of the Anatol Rodgers School, for the privilege of utilizing their facilities.

“We likewise thank the Minister of National Security for the Security provided daily by both the Royal Bahamas Police Force and Royal Bahamas Defence Force Details; throughout our Operations.
