It’s a statement, the entity pointed out that the person who wishes to obtain a passport must pay the processing fee at the Banco de la Nación and not have an electoral fine, as well as choose, according to their needs, one of the three mechanisms that exist to process a passport:

For urgency: the attention is direct and without an appointment when you have a purchased ticket. The citizen can go to the Jorge Chávez International Airport or to the headquarters in Breña, from 48 hours prior to your flight, carrying the travel ticket, boarding pass, DNI and proof of payment of the right.


After the decrease in cases of contagion by COVID-19, many governments relaxed their sanitary measures, however, thanks to the rapid advance of the new omicron variant, these restrictions are being implemented again in some countries. Here we give you all the details.

By exception: attention is by scheduled appointment upon request through the Digital Migration Agency, when the passport is required as a prior condition for another procedure, for example: process a visa or carry out a residence procedure for another country, to obtain a scholarship or a student exchange, etc. The scheduling of the appointment is granted after submitting the support of the immediate need to have a passport.

Appointment system: attention is by appointment according to the available attention schedule, respecting the restricted capacity and the operational capacity. Attention by appointment responds to the sanitary conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which requires respecting the restricted capacity.


In the last quarter of 2021, around 250,000 passports, a higher figure compared to the last quarter of 2020, in which only 58,825 passports were issued; and also higher than that of the third quarter of 2021, in which 230,000 passports were issued.
