Applying for A Dominica Passport

Effective January 1st 2008, all passports are been issued at the Immigration Department, Police Headquarters, in Roseau, Dominica. The new passport is a Machine Readable CARICOM passport that conforms to international standards. The regular colour is Blue and it will replace those currently in circulation.

Your best option is to have the Dominica Consulate, New York Office, assist you with the processing of your new CARICOM passport. Applications for new passports are sent to Dominica on a weekly basis and the return courier fee of US $50.00 is the responsibility of the applicant. That amount can be paid in cash to the Dominica Consulate or by postal money order made out to the Dominica Mission to the UN.

An interview is required for ANY first time applicant or for ANY applicant replacing the old British passport.

Yes. You will still need someone to recommend you. Usually it is someone in good standing in society such as a senior civil servant, teacher, accountant etc.

Does someone have to be a Dominican to get a Dominican passport. We heard that if you have enough money you can get one,no problem, you can buy one from the prime minister even though you have never been to Dominica or are from Dominica. Anybody can get a Dominica passport for the right price even the residents of MARS. Money, Money and connections talks.
