Laissez-Passer

Dear Valued Esteemed Citizens,

We understand that life’s journeys can sometimes lead us to unexpected places. As Eritrean citizens, there may be occasions when you require a Laissez-Passer to facilitate your travels. At the Eritrean Embassy, we stand ready to assist you through this crucial process.

Processing Fees:

  • Regular: $65.00
  • Urgent: $80.00

All payments should be made via money order or bank draft payable to “Consulate of Eritrea.”

Additionally, we kindly request that you provide a self-addressed prepaid return envelope, preferably via registered mail (e.g., FedEx), for a secure and efficient document return.

What is a Laissez-Passer?

A Laissez-Passer is a travel document issued to Eritrean citizens for urgent travel when their national passport is not available. It provides a means to leave or enter a country when your regular passport is inaccessible or unavailable.

How We Can Assist

Our dedicated team at the Eritrean Consulate is fully committed to ensuring that your travel plans proceed as smoothly as possible. We are here to offer guidance throughout the application process, address your inquiries, and provide the necessary support to obtain your Laissez-Passer.

Important Note

The Laissez-Passer is intended for emergency situations and for those who are relocating to Eritrea on a permanent basis. The issuance of a Laissez-Passer is based on the application and the specific circumstances of the applicant. Please be aware that a Laissez-Passer does not replace a passport. If you are in need of an Eritrean passport, we recommend applying well in advance.

We thank you for considering the Eritrean Consulate as your trusted partner in obtaining a Laissez-Passer. We are here to facilitate your travel document needs, and your satisfaction is our priority.
