New 10-year passport
A 10-year passport will now be available starting next Monday, 16 May 2016.
Passport Office Director Iris Guaba announced that the new passport will cost RD$5,300 and will be optional as the six-year passport will still be available. She added that the new passport has been introduced at the request of Dominicans who have United States visas so the passport would be valid for the same time period and save them from having to travel with two passports.
Initially the passport will be only available from the main passport office but it will eventually be available from all the passport-issuing offices and will have the same features as the current one.
It will only be issued to people over the age of 14.
Guaba said the new passport will be a VIP service whereas the six-year one will be subject to the existing fee of RD$1,850 normal service and RD$2,850 VIP.
