How to change Dominica passport to the latest biometric in 2022?

Back in July 2021, the authorities of the Caribbean state announced that they were switching from the standard format of machine-readable passports of Dominica (MRP), where information with basic data is optically read from the home page, to electronic passports (E-passport). In January 2022, all local agents of the Dominica investment citizenship program were informed that it was necessary to start the process as soon as possible and replace Dominica’s passport with a new one. The exchange deadline was reduced, and, according to the new rules, all citizens of Dominica should receive a new passport format by August 30, 2022.

What is the difference between Dominica electronic passport and biometric one?

The main difference between Dominica biometric passport and the usual one is a built-in microcircuit containing data on the owner of the document: passport number, date of issue and expiration, photograph, surname, first name, patronymic, date of birth of a person, biometric data can be supplemented with information that can be used to authenticate the identity of the passport holder: iris pattern, fingerprints, etc.
