Hi, I am living in Abu Dhabi and would like to renew my passport. I dont know which form to use. is it the same as the Application form? Do i need to get a police clearance (section 5) what is NIC? I am planning to send my application to a relative in Mauritius because it is easier and seems faster. When I called the Immigration office in Mauritius they said I should write a cover letter to say my relative will submit my application and collect the new passport for me. Does this letter have to be formal i.e. certified?

Thanks for your help.

From what I've heard, doing it through the High Commission can take up to 3 months. However doing in in Mauritius itself takes less than a week.

Btw, I was talking to another Mauritian living in Dublin yesterday on our chat who is looking to renew his Mauritian passport as well. I'm just thinking maybe it would be nice for you 2 to get in touch. Are you interested?
