Premier and Governor attends BMU code to Bermuda’s passports ceremony

The BMU code is being restored because there have been some difficulties reported from holders of Bermuda passports with a GBR code when travelling to the United States from a country other than Bermuda.

Appropriate notices are being issued via the ICAO system so that immigration authorities and carriers globally are aware of the changes.

The official event took place at the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) headquarters in Montreal, Canada. Premier, Hon. E. David Burt, JP, MP, and Her Excellency the Governor, Rena Lalgie formally participated in today’s signing.

Representing the ICAO are Mr. Mohamed Khalifa Rahma, Director of ICAO’s Air Transport Bureau and Sylvain Lefoyer, Deputy Directory, Aviation Security and Facilitation (pictured).

For further information, regarding the changes, the public should contact the Department of Immigration on 246-8093.
