For Immediate Release
The hand written passports canceled
11 February 2016
The general public is advised that as of 19 February 2016 all handwritten Bahamas passports will be canceled and become null and void. All those in possession of those passports should immediately surrender them and obtain an electronic passport.
This public advisory is another reminder as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had issued public notices to this effect last year. Please be so advised.
Notices to all foreign missions and border points will be sent to that effect.
