The Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas is committed to providing quality customer service to Bahamians, and have launched the first phase of the digitisation of the Passport Office. This would allow Bahamian Nationals, 18 years and over to apply for the renewal of their ePassports.
The Constitution and the Bahamas Nationality Act 1973 contain the detailed provisions affecting the acquisition or loss of Bahamian citizenship. If you are a Bahamian citizen, you may apply for a Bahamas Passport. A copy of the High Commission’s Fact Sheet on Bahamian citizenship may be downloaded here.
Please note that the online portal http://mofa.gov.bs/passportrenewal is for online renewal of ePassports. The following documents are required for the renewal of ePassports:
- Scan of personal date and signature pages of your existing ePassport (pdf format)
- Digital Copy of the most recent passport photograph (not more than 6 months old jpeg format)
- Valid credit/debit card
All applicants with lost, stolen, and damaged passports, persons requesting a name change and under the age of 18 years old, must apply in person at the High Commission. For guidelines on completion of an application, please contact the High Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org for a full list of documentation and instructions.
All applications for renewal via the online portal must collect their Passports from the High Commission in London. The Applicant must present his/her most recent passport and the electronic receipt of payment upon collection.
