Please note: The practice of Exchange/Replacement Passports has been discontinued. Therefore, if a passport holder wishes to change an aspect of his/her passport (e.g. the passport is damaged, there are no more visa pages left or a change of name on passport is required), a new passport must be applied for and the appropriate fee paid in full.

Validity of Passports

Infants (up to age 3) are issued with a 3 year passport.

Children aged 3-17 are issued with a 5 year passport.

Persons aged 18 and over are issued with a 10 year passport.

In certain cases (e.g. where a previous passport has been lost or stolen), the Passport Office may restrict the validity of a replacement passport.
