CHANGES TO PASSPORT SERVICES BY 12/08/2013 FOR BRITISH NATIONALS
The British Government is making important changes to the passport service for British nationals living overseas.
From 12 August 2013, the application process will be centralised and British nationals in Barbados and the independent countries of the Eastern Caribbean should submit their passport application to Her Majesty’s Passport Office in the UK.
This important change follows reviews by the National Audit Office and is designed to achieve economies of scale, greater security and consistency in decision making.
All British passports have enhanced sophisticated security features designed to reduce the likelihood of identity theft and passport fraud.
