To get a Nigerian international passport – here’s what you need to do



To get a Nigerian international passport, you need to follow the steps and requirements outlined below:

1. Obtain a National Identification Number (NIN)

Before applying for a Nigerian passport, you need to obtain a NIN from the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). This can be done by visiting any NIMC enrollment center with the required documents, including a valid means of identification, such as a national ID card, driver’s license, or voter’s card.

2. Complete the Passport Application Form

After obtaining your NIN, you need to complete the Nigerian passport application form. This can be done online at the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) portal or at any of the NIS passport offices across the country. You will need to provide personal information, such as your name, date of birth, and contact details.

3. Provide Required Documents

You will need to provide certain documents to support your passport application. These documents include:

  • Two recent passport-sized photographs
  • Proof of payment of the passport application fee
  • Birth certificate or sworn affidavit of age declaration
  • Valid national identity card or driver’s license
  • Local government area (LGA) letter of identification
  • Marriage certificate or divorce decree (if applicable)
  • Letter of consent from parents or guardians (if applicant is under 18)

4. Book an Appointment for Biometric Data Capturing

After submitting your application and supporting documents, you will need to book an appointment to have your biometric data captured. This involves taking your fingerprints and digital photograph, which will be used to create your passport.

5. Collect Your Passport

Once your biometric data has been captured and your application has been processed, you can collect your Nigerian international passport from the passport office where you applied. The passport is usually ready for collection within a few weeks of the biometric data capture.
