|E-passport Interview - Help! by abby_orun: 6:54pm On Jun 12, 2012|
I am due to attend an interview for Nigerian passports for myself and my children. Can someone please please help?
Do I have to take my children to the interview. Dont relish the prospect of a whole day at Nigerian embassy with school aged children
what documents do I need please? All I got from the website was
signed application form, 2 passport sized photographs, aknowledgement and payment form
Now someone is telling me I need £20 postal order, one for myself and 3 for my three children,
Guarantors form, signed and sworn? does the guarantor have to be Nigerian based?
Do I need any additional document especially with regards to my kids?
i do not want to do repeated trips to the embassy...where is the embassy please?
sorry for all the many questions ooo but like I said I dont want to do double journey, cant afford the time off and my travel is set for next month.
ok, thank you muchest...Abigail

abby_orun: Hello All,
Your kids fingerprint, digital picture and signature have to be taken, so in that case they need to be there.
The postal order is a must, you may not even be allowed in without having it.
So buy the poster order for everyone of you, print out the online payment page and the page that contains your details.
I did not go with any guarantee form.

I can understand where you coming from, but try and go as early as possible to avoid queue. If you got there early it takes less time to get done.

just to say thank you so much, got some very good advise prior to my "interview" at the Nigerian embassy in london this week. It was not much of an interview. More like checking if you had the right documents for a Nigerian passport. we got there 8:30AM and were done by 1PM. Going back next week to collect the passports !
Process was painless(I suppose I had prepared for the worst!). The queues moved fast and orderly, considering they deal with new applications, visa applications, collection of passport and everything else in between!.
I was pleasantly surprised! One thing though, although the website does mentions 2 passport sized photographs, this is not needed as you will still have your picture taken as part of the process. Also do read the entries CAREFULLY before they hit the submit button. Failure to do so will invalidate your new passport and you will have to pay $65 and start the process all over again...I observed some very interesing and unhappy exchanges of words. Not sure if this is useful to anyone: but if you plan to revert to your maiden name(for the ladies now) there is an additional charge of £40 postal order, marriage certificate and divorce certficate....I was eaveasdropping ...erm..thats all really. Just thought someone may benefit from my experience...Tara for now
