The 30 Page Cameroon passport with 5 years validity will cost FCFA110,000 irrespective of the country from which you are applying.
The simplified Cameroon Passport renewal process in Dubai, UAE can be done in 3 main stages. You can watch the step-by-step process in the YouTube video below.

  1. The pre-enrollment stage
  2. Registration at the Consulate General
  3. Collection of your passport from the Consulate

Step 1: Pre-enrolment via the Online Portal

The first step to applying for a Cameroon passport in Dubai and anywhere in the world is registering your personal data via the website (www.passcam.cm)
