No increase in passport fees – Govt

In light of information being peddled that there has been an increase in fees for the application and processing of passports, the Guyana Government is maintaining that it has neither made nor implemented such a decision.

Quite recently, a large number of persons have been flocking the Central Immigration and Passport Office located on Camp Street, Georgetown, so  as to avoid paying the rumoured “increase” in fees which they were informed would take effect from the beginning of May.

According to Government sources, the original cost of GYD $4,000 remains the same. It has not been hiked to GYD $15,000 as is being propagated by some persons.

INews understands that for any increase in passport fees to take effect, the government of the day or the Legislative Assembly would have to make that decision and neither of the two has made any changes to the original cost thus far.
