Fees & Requirements for obtaining a Jamaican Passport
The Government of Jamaica began phasing out the old format blue-coloured Jamaican passport in 2002 and has been issuing new machine readable passports. Although the old format passports will remain valid until their date of expiry, persons who have not already done so are encouraged to apply for the new machine readable passport.
The new machine readable passports are issued by the Immigration, Citizenship and Passport Office in Kingston. All passport applications from outside Jamaica should be made through the nearest Jamaican Embassy or Consulate.
In order to avoid delays, applicants are advised to read carefully the instructions on the passport application form, complete and sign all relevant sections, as well as submit all the necessary supporting documentation.
Passport renewal / replacement applications must be accompanied by the following:
New Adult Passport - ¥ 14,200
New Child Passport* - ¥ 10,200
Replacement of stolen, lost, unavailable, damaged passport (adult) - ¥ 24,200
Replacement of stolen, lost, unavailable, damaged passport (child) - ¥ 14,200
For express courier arrangements, please make direct contact with the Embassy for further information.
