Minister of Finance Christopher Sinckler in delivering the Financial Statements and Budgetary Proposals for 2010, said some changes would be coming to the department from December 1, with the increases expected to yield about $4 million in revenue for Government.
From next month, adult passports will increase by $25, from $125 to $150; and for those under 16 years, from $75 to $100. For lost passports, persons will now have to pay more than $100 extra, with the cost moving from $190 to $300 for the replacement.
For single entry visas, persons will now pay US$100 (non-refundable), up from US$50, while work permits will also increase from between $25 to $125 in some cases.
