Is it better to go for capturing at the passport office in Ikoyi or is the one at Alausa also okay?

Also can I go to a different passport office from the one selected online while registering?
If you haven't register it's better to go to Ikoyi, from what I have read here, you can go there to submit form and still capture that same day but you would be told to come back the third day at Ala us a and again your passport might not be ready on the date stated on your slip but I haven't seen anyone with that issue that registered at Ikoyi

my bad...
well I just hope it gets resolved.


Please has anyone here done online registration successfully using Abuja office for capturing and all because all stories so far seem ok in Lagos as opposed to the information passed about the process in FCT?

Having gained from the thread, I guess I should share my experience for others to benefit.
Mine was a renewal; my passport will expire in April 2020. I wanted the 10 year validity passport; this is only available in 64 pages and is N70,000. I filled the form online, chose Ikoyi office and paid in Zenith bank. I tried to pay with my card but it took long for the OTP to arrive on several occasions; hence I decided to go to the bank. I paid N70,500.

Required documents
Old passport booklet (They will sight and return to you)
2 passport photos on white background
Copy of NIN slip
Letter of application for renewal (handwritten)
Copies of old passport data page
Printed online form
Acknowledgement slip
Payment slip
2 forms you'd be given at the servicom desk.

For renewal, you DO NOT need:
-guarantor
-state of origin confirmation
-birth certificate
-court affidavit

After the filling the forms, I checked and rechecked all information for correctness before proceeding to pay. Once you request to pay, you'll see a lot of payment channels, I chose Sanaa pay and got a print out which I took to the bank and paid.
I returned and checked my profile and noticed a capturing date had been assigned: 31st Dec. 2019.
Dday, I arrived the Ikoyi office at about 9am with all my documents and proceeded to the servicom office. I was given two new forms to photocopy and fill. Photocopies cost N50 per page; N100 for 3 pages.
Returned and filled out the forms; the officer brought out a file jacket and enclosed all the documents, itemized the stages and sent me off to the next desk at servicom. Here, the file was reviewed again, the officer signed did some registration in a book and sent me off to the long room. One of the officers at servicom took the files (there were two others guys DIYing like me; just three of us  at the time and our files were different from the ones being assisted by NIS officials), she handed it to the guys at the long room (verification I guess) and ensured they attended to the files and even proceeded with them to the capture room for enrolment. She enrolled us whilst we joined the queue for biometrics. The queue moved quickly and I was done in no time. They printed a form with an enrolment I.D and other details; collection date printed on the form was 3rd January 2020. I returned to servicom with my file and the form, the officer at servicom took the file and advised me to check in two weeks because they didn't have booklets for the 10 year at the time. Can't remember precisely but I think I left the NIS office at about 10.30am.

I returned to passport office on Friday, 17th January, went with the enrolment form I was given on the day of capturing. I went to the servicom desk first, the lady took my form and typed something in the computer and told me it was ready. She ticked on the form and told me go to the collection room for pick up. I got there and it was crowded. I was told to drop the form in a basket and wait for the officers to pick up and go retrieve the passport. 15 minutes from when I dropped my slip an officer came out and packed all the slips in the basket. From then, I waited for 1 hour 30 mins; the officers came out severally but I still didn't hear my name. I got uncomfortable and as I stood up to go complain, I saw the lady that had attended to me and confirmed my passport was ready; she was walking towards the collection room, I ran after her and told her I was still waiting, she told me to rewrite my name on a piece of paper and give her. She went into the office with it and reemerged with my passport. I joined the queue for activation; this took another 30 minute wait. The entire collection process took 2 hours as I arrived at 11.50am and left at about 1.50pm.
Overall, I think it's a worthwhile experience except for how long collection took; my passport expires in 2030 grin, so mission accomplished...everyone should DIY!!!
I hope this helps someone.
Hello can an electronic version of the old passport be presented where the physical is not available or lost?

Shercorp:


How would u go to a different one?
is it not stated on your application form..?

I was just considering the distance and stress, ended up going to Ikoyi today though.
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by khattab008: 3:43pm On Feb 06
Just to add to what has already being said.

Going the DIY route can be quite stressful so be prepared (they will just ignore your file while attending to other people's files and giving funny looks).

If your guarantor doesn't have drivers license go with a copy of his/her nin slip.

All the best

If you do it by your self, your capturing day is always stated in your printout and when you are done with capturing and given the slip you are meant to come with for collection,you would also see the date for collected too on the printout.

From observations, yes.

For those are that haven't registered yet, I think it might be best to select the ikoyi office.

How is this so? You should capture same day you submit your file. Why couldn't they capture your biometric same day??

1. If I get you correctly, guarantor needs to provide copy of his/her drivers licence.

2. I need to go there with my birth certificate & NIN

Please, I've not done NIN registration before but when I dialed *346# on the number I used for bvn registration, it shows my NIN. Can I make use of this NIN despite the fact that I've not officially register on NIMC website?

Thank you

If your guarantor doesn't have driver's license you can go with his/her NIN slip or national identification card instead.

1. Yes or photocopy of his national ID or NIN slip
2. Photocopies.

Yes that's it, input it when filling the application online and on the form you will be given there too.
all you have to do is visit any NIMC office and get your slip printed with the number.

if you still have a photocopy of your data page as your passport number is needed, thats a good start. Then on the portal use the "Apply for Re-issue of Lost/Stolen or Damaged Passport" and proceed with your application.
Maybe max of a week after application for capturing and ten working days after, for collection...
