Government to launch new Electronic Passport Control System in October

Posted: Saturday, September 10, 2022. 12:44 pm CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Government of Belize will launch a new application process for electronic passports through the Electronic Passport Issuance and Control System (e-PICS) in October.

“The new e-PICS system and e-Passports will be more secure and will allow for efficient processing through modern border management systems,” said a press release by the Government of Belize Press Office.

“The e-passport will include an electronic chip to safeguard the user’s personal information and photograph as well as a verification feature for use at smart gates at international borders. It will be a symbol of national pride for Belizeans and will establish a bond of trust between Belize and those countries processing entries.”

The Press Office said the services provided by the Ministry of Immigration’s Nationality and Passports Department will be interrupted on October 11, 2022, to enable the deployment and implementation of the new system.

The Immigration Officers who will operate the new system will be trained from October 11 to 21, 2022. During this period, only expedited 24-hour and medical emergency passport applications will be accepted.

“A complete suspension of acceptance of passport applications will occur on October 17, 2022, and regular services will resume during the week of October 24, 2022, when Belizeans will be able to apply for the new e-passports,” said the Press Office.

The Government of Belize said it apologizes for any inconvenience this disruption in passport service may cause and advises that more information can be found by clicking here.
