Before taking a trip, the first thing we do is look for information, know more about tourist places, make an itinerary, look for different airlines, and compare prices, and finally, we just remembered the passport. Many times we find ourselves with the surprise that this travel document is expired or that it has a few days to expire. Immediately, we enter the official page of the government of the Bahamas to be able to look for a solution. However, this process is usually very extensive and at the same time boring.
Nevertheless, iVisa has implemented a new product that consists of completing an online form for the renewal of your Bahamas passport in just 15 minutes and you will not have to go anywhere so you can do it from the comfort of your home.
If you want to know more about this new product, just read the following information on this blog.
