Renewing an Expired, Damaged or Lost Passport
When renewing a Dominica passport, your old one is typically cancelled and returned to you, though it is no longer valid for travel. While no longer valid for travel, your old passport could still contain valuable visas and entry/exit stamps, which serve as records of past international travel history. Some countries may require both your old and new passports when entering or exiting; always double-check entry requirements of countries you plan to visit prior to planning any international journeys.
How to Acquire a Dominican Passport
To obtain a Grenadian passport, you must meet the eligibility criteria, typically involving citizenship through birth, descent, or naturalization. Additionally, individuals can also acquire Grenadian citizenship through the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program, which offers an alternative pathway to obtaining a Grenadian passport. Once the eligibility criteria are met, gather the required documents, complete the passport application form accurately, obtain passport-sized photos, pay the applicable fees, and submit your application to the relevant authorities. Be prepared to provide biometric data and inquire about processing times. Keep in mind that requirements and procedures may change, so staying updated through official channels is essential.
