The Issuing Of A New Nigerian Passport? Please Help by Chetti: 9:42am On Sep 21, 2010
I have to apply for a new passport. I live in Sweden and the embassy here doesn´t issue passports. They told me to get a emergency travelling document to travel to Nigeria and apply for a new passport there.

But I would like to do it here in Europe. (?!)

* What countries in Europe issue passports?

* What would you think is the easiest and fastest way for me to get a new passport?

* Should I do it in Nigeria or somewhere here in Europe?

Please give me all your adviceyou have!!

Are you a Swedish citizen? If you have a Swedish passport, then get yourself a visa to Nigeria and when you get there you apply for the new passport.

First, contact Nigeria Embassy in UK ask them if you can apply for it there. If not, the best alternative is to come to Nigeria and apply for it yourself. You can collect it in a day if you are able to get all the necessary documents together for the passport application. Don't even try the online version (e-passport) because your presence is still required on the day of issuance and collection where your thumbprints, fingerprints and your real passport photo would be taken to authenticate the real owner of the passport. I can direct you to where you can get it done quickly without much ado or stress. I got mine in a day. So, contact me if you are a real Nigerian citizen but not a Ghanaian claiming Nigerian passport. ajibawoolusola@gmail.com

As the current Nigerian passport will cease to be a legal document by December 2010. You will have to apply for the new e-passport. You can do that in any of the Nigerian Embassies in Spain or Italy and yes you will be asked to be present. Call and enquire from them before making the journey.

Thank you for your answer. So it takes like one day to get a nigerian passport i Nigeria? How much does it cost?
For me to go to England is very expensive.
I think I´ll apply for an emergency travelling certificate from the nigerian embassy here in Sweden and then do my passport in Nigeria. Do you think the migration border at the nigerian airport will cause a lot of trouble, asking for money etc.? Just to enter with that emergency travelling document?

I paid N17, 500 for the passport i got in a day. I don't think the migration officers at the airport will give you any unnecessary trouble. However, just in case, because of Nigerian factor; prepare yourself to give them something (only if they ask for it). But with your emergency travel certificate, i don't expect them to give you any undue anxiety. If its necessary, email me when you're around. ajibawoolusola@gmail.com

Hi
I just applied for emergency trevel certificate in london. and on it it was written 'leaving from london' but i live in aberdeen and am leaving from aberdeen. Does the disparity matter? they have refused to change it claiming it doesnt matter but i dont know. has anyone out there has that issue before?
Re: The Issuing Of A New Nigerian Passport? Please Help by Vicjustice: 11:40pm On May 16, 2011
@ Poster,
By terms and conditions, you are not eligible to apply for your passport at any Nigerian embassy except in the country where you legally reside; but in the situation where there is no embassy in your country of stay, then a presiding Nigerian embassy in another country would take charge.
Now, given that there is a Nigerian embassy in Stockholm, you can only do your passport at it or in Nigeria.
Remember that among other things, you need a proof of address, proof of residence permit, a Nigerian guarantor and his/her proof of same in order to apply for a passport at the embassy.

I lost it 2003. It expired 2009 anyhow.
You lost your passport in 2003, (after being in service for a period of time), and it expired in 2009?
Was your passport valid for 20 years, are you sure you really ever had a Nigerian Passport?

   It really wouldn't matter, the UK immigration would be more than delighted to see you leave their country by any means and from any airport: All they would do is to make a pen-written remark on the TC to correct the error

   Say this Jargon tales to those foolish enough to do business with a worthless someone like you; if really you've ever looked over Nigerian shores from the sky, you would have known the meaning of the word "Proxy Passport" and the consequences of being caught in possession of one.

@ Vicjustice
                   Dont insalt me here and mind the way u talk to people Here.I dont think its a crime for me to post what am able to do for people.For example when an hausa man wants to buy medicine from U after you have explained or described how the medicine works?He will ask u a question that Have you used this medicine before and did it worked for you??what am trying to imply is that I am capable of doing it.It will be issued genuinely by the immigration, THINK VERY WELL BEFORE YOU INTERFERE ON SOMEONES ISSUE.
