Minister for National Security Rayburn Blackmoore says Dominicans living abroad will soon be able to apply for their e-passports with no hassle as the government expands their immigration services internationally.
Speaking at a press conference earlier today, the minister announced mobile kits would begin operating in the region starting June 2022.
According to Minister Blackmoore, Dominicans in St. Marteen will have access to this critical service from June 20th to June 23rd, while Dominicans in the US Virgin Islands will have access from June 27th to June 30th.
As of February 2022, over twenty-four thousand E-passports have been issued following the announcement of government’s decision to transition to the new e-passport by August of 2022.
The National Security Minister notes, if the Dominican passport is to remain relevant in this new global environment, citizens must have an E-passport.
