Passport Division

 

The issue of a travel document is a central subject under the Passports Act 2011. The Division ensures that travel document services are delivered to citizens in a timely, transparent, accessible and reliable manner. As part of the Department's many initiatives, the Division is being ushered in an era of e-Governance to improve the delivery of services.

 

A travel document is essential for those who are travelling abroad for education, tourism, medical, business, family visits and so forth.

 

You may apply for a passport if:

  1. it is your first time applying for a passport;
  2. your passport is running out of pages;
  3. your passport has expired or is about to expire; and
  4. your passport is damaged or lost.

The activities of the Passport Division are carried out in accordance with the various pieces of legislation such as the Passport Act 2011 and conventions such as the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) standards and procedures that regulate passport operations.

 

Since the up-rise of the Corona-virus (COVID-19) pandemic in March 2020, the number of application for passport has decreased by approximately 90.60%.

 

Between July 2020 to June 2021, there has been an average of 2,275 new passports issued, 171 passports were renewed and 25 passports were cancelled. 

 

The Passport Division also issues Certificates of Identity for non-Nauruans such as asylum seekers for the purposes of medical treatment abroad, deportees and foreigners with expired passports who urgently need to return to their  country of origin.

Achievements

 

In August 2020, the Cabinet approved the Passports (Forms) Regulations 2020. This was notified in the Gazette on 20th August 2020. These Regulations provide forms, including for the following:

  1. application for Nauruan travel document;
  2. application for a travel-related document; and
  3. certificate of identity.

The Regulations is a necessary measure by the Division as part of Nauru's combined effort in ensuring compliance with our ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) obligations. Nauru is required to properly prescribe its process relating to travel document applications, its determinations and issuance.

 

 

Way Forward

 

  •  The process of moving from Machine Readable Passport (MRP) to Electronic Passport (ePassport) will commence soon as temporary Covid-19 travel restrictions are lifted.  Our  team will ensure to maintain international credibility and integrity of Passports issued under the Passports Act 2011.
  • Due to COVID19, passport revenue is unable to reach its $180,000 target.
  • Our team will continue to work closely with Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to rectify all the errors found in the previous issuance of some birth certificates, errors in names, date of births, place of birth, parents names etc.
