Government Announces ‘New And Improved’ Immigration Office


The Government of Saint Lucia announces the relocation of the Immigration Department to a new office.

Situated upstairs in the Cox Building at the intersection of Cadet Street and Jeremie Street, this move signifies a meaningful progression in improving the working environment for our dedicated Immigration officers.

The relocation is designed to enhance the efficiency of passport collection and application processes, as well as streamline visa applications and processing, along with other services provided by the immigration department.

This move also aims to create a more seamless experience for the public. Simultaneously, the move is focused on providing immigration officers with a healthier, more comfortable, and productive workspace.

The occupation of the new premises is a source of satisfaction for both Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre and the Minister of Home Affairs Dr. Virginia Albert-Poyotte.

This action demonstrates the government’s dedication to the welfare of its employees and to the improving its service delivery to the general public.

The new office will be ready to serve the public very soon.

The Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs extend heartfelt gratitude to both the Immigration staff and the general public for their patience during the transition.

The government recognizes and values their understanding and cooperation.

  1. A picture of the building would be insightful for persons who can’t make the connection with where this is.

  2. New and improved immigration service would be the return of our 10 year passport. Moving to a new building does nothing for service. Look at OKEU – is there anything improved from VH? No. Same will be with SJH if that ever happens in this century.

    Anyway, they announced the move to a new building months ago, but as usual did nothing. A proper adult passport is 10 years, like in all English-speaking countries in the Caribbean, except of course Dominica and St Lucia. Ten years’ passport is the standard. Make it happen if you actually care about St Lucians!

  3. I’m in agreement @Anonymous. We need to revert to the 10 year passport. Five years is just unacceptable!!!

  4. Just a set of blatant COMMENTS
