The differences, as described in a note from the El Nuevo Heraldo website, are not only related to the design compared to the version of the electronic passport.

In addition, it includes innovative technologies that significantly increase safety for travellers. This change allowed for the inclusion of a polycarbonate data page and laser etchings.

Another feature that names the same note is that it is alphanumeric. That is, identification occurs through numbers and letters. It starts with a letter and is followed by a number.

It also has a QR sticker for easy access to important travel and passport information.

The validity of the passport passport

When asked if it is possible to use the previous passport, the note from El Nuevo Heraldo clarifies that it will not be necessary to renew the current documentation, as the previous edition is still in progress until its expiry date.

When to renew your passport

from the United States?

One of the recommendations is to start the procedures at least six months before international travel.

If getting a new passport is really a priority, you can request an express service through a passport agency.

Otherwise, it will be convenient for a service to make a cheaper regular request.
