Demonstration of the new Electronic Visas and Biometric Passport Systems in The Bahamas High Commission in London
The High Commission now has in place the appropriate infrastructure to start the enrolment and issuance of Biometric (e-passports). These passports are already being issued in the Passport Offices in Nassau, Freeport and Abaco and are being offered through the Consulates and Missions in Miami, Atlanta, Washington, New York and Ottawa.
Bahamian nationals in the United Kingdom and in Europe will now be able to enrol for their new biometric passports in person in London. While the passports will still be printed at the Passport Office in Nassau, the Mission will be working towards a four week turnaround from enrolment to issuance.
Further information regarding the electronic visas, renewal of passports, and the application forms, can be found on the Visa and Passport sections of this website.
Miss Cheri Wood, Consular Assistant, demonstrates the use of the equipment.
