On the other hand, if an applicant is over the age of twelve (12) years and is unable to call in person to apply for his/her passport and have his/her fingerprints captured due to a temporary or permanent medical reason, sickness or because of old age, he/she will be issued with a passport which is valid for one (1) year or less. In such circumstances, a medical certificate must be submitted to sustain the applicant’s claim of infirmity.
In the unlikely event that the fingerprint capturing station fails to capture the applicant’s fingerprint because of a technical problem (especially in urgent matters and in the case of outside office hours service), the Passport Office will issue a passport without the encoded fingerprints, which will be valid for one (1) year or less.
If the fingerprints captured on collection does not match that stored on the e-passport’s chip, the travel document will not be released, and the matter will be investigated by the Passport Officer in charge.
