Collect Passports Now!

| 26/08/2008

(CNS): The Passport and Corporate Services Office (PCSO) is reminding the public to pick up travel documents that are ready for collection, as soon as possible. PCSO head, Janice McLean said people with documents that have been processed by the Passport Office and are ready or have passed the due date for collection should pick them up now.

The Passport Office is open weekdays 9:00 am to 3:00pm. The Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs recently reminded residents to take personal responsibility for key aspects of their hurricane preparations. “All persons are reminded that they should check their travel documents now to ensure that they are in order, Deputy Chief Secretary in the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs,” Donovan Ebanks said in a government release.

He explained that advance preparations are important for all, particularly if decisions are made to leave the Islands due to hurricane conditions. It is critical to remember that travel documents cannot be issued if weather conditions dictate the closure of government offices, including the Passport Office.

Passports and other documents such as birth and marriage certificates, naturalisation and registration papers, Caymanian status and permanent residence certificates, should be kept together in waterproof bags or other containers and stored in a secure place which is easily accessible in emergency situations, Mr. Ebanks said.
