The public is asked to note that the recall period for non–machine readable passports has ended and only machine readable passports will be accepted for travel.

Citizens of Saint Lucia who presently carry non-machine readable passports will be required to contact the Immigration Department, in the Lamar Building on Bridge Street, Castries.

This new system is in compliance with the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the organization that governs the specifications and guidelines for travel documents.

The introduction of the Machine Readable Passport is to enhance the security of travel documents and to avoid counterfeiting and fraudulent alterations.
