While waiting for my biometrics, I discovered that of more than 50 people that gathered under the shade, that I was the only person whose file was not being handled/helped by any immigration officer, which means I was the only one that paid online. Other people there paid between 35,000 to 40,000. According to them, express (two days delivery of passport) costs between 35,000 to 40,000 while normal delivery cost 30,000. I simply laughed and waited for my turn. While doing the biometrics, I saw that the computer recorded 5 days ahead as my collection date. I quietly left the office. In my mind, I wanted to give them 2 weeks.

Fortunately, about 12 days later, I had a business to transact in Enugu State High Court and decided to check for the passport. On reaching the immigration office, I told them my mission and 10 minutes later, the passport was handed to me which was actually printed exactly 6 days after biometrics. Funny enough while waiting for the passport, the four persons before my turn where asked to buy passport cover for N1000 (one thousand naira). When I collected mine, I asked the lady if there was any other thing, she simply said no and waved me off. I smiled.

From the foregoing, the online application took 11days from application to collection.

Lessons I learnt while waiting for my biometrics
• Most Nigerians are unaware that passport application can be done online
• Some Nigerians are afraid of making mistake if allowed to initiate the process by themselves
• Many Nigerians are convinced that the online process is a scam which can simply be ignored by the immigration officers (Some of the officials themselves are also guilty of this as they threaten to delay the passport or even interview date between 2 – 6 months, which is a big lie).
• Move with confidence. Let them be aware that you know what you are doing. You will hear phrases like “self payment applicant”, simply ignore them as there is nothing like community or communal payment in passport processing. If you are delayed or asked to pay any additional cash, simple twitte to @nigimmigration (the guys incharge of twitter handle are efficient)
• Lastly, I will not call the immigration officials scammers or corrupt people because you pay them for services rendered. Among the document you need to photocopy for the interview include photocopies of your guarantor’s driving licence, NIN or data page of international passport and your own affidavit of age/birth certificate. Some of the immigration officials initiate the online process for the applicant and provide the guarantor photocopies of necessary documents.
• Amazingly, right at the passport office is a warning that applicants should not pay cash but transact online payment.
• Some of us are in a “hurry” and do not want to stress ourselves. The lady that sat by my side would be using her passport in February 2020 and she was also in a hurry.

Thanks everyone.

I like your courage bro.
What is the guarantors form like? Who needs to fill it? What information is needed. Thanks.

It means the NIS office don't have the new passport, I think only Lagos and abuja has it.

You have to go to Federal secreteriat, Aba road.
I don't know how well the DIY ish works here in PH. They always have issues with booklet and it's not even available now but they are expecting in 2 weeks- they will most likely settle those who went through agents first.
I heard some people that applied months ago haven't gotten theirs.


Thank you Ovywils
Is it advisable to apply online or I should go through the agent route?
Besides, I don't even have a guarantor self

DadR:
Congrats
Please, did you go there for collection on Feb 5 and were you told to come back today or you just took your time?

My wife captured on Monday, February 10th and was told to come for pick up today, February 13th. She got there 12pm and left 5pm but was not given her passport.

She said they were all asking for the contact person/officer who helped her but she replied she did it herself. After 5 hours she was told it's not ready. Her request is renewal cum name change.

House, it is possible it's not ready truly or they just want to frustrate her efforts because she did it herself?

Please, what is the office Twitter handle of NIS? I will like to escate this.

I actually went on the 5th and after I gave them the slip to check, they checked and made some signature stuff on the slip n told me it wasn't ready. but to check back in exactly a week time, which I did and it was handed to me.
is yours at the Ikoyi office too?

Please how many days after filling the form and paying is your capturing scheduled on?

Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by DadR: 9:18pm On Feb 15
Yea, it's for my wife and at Ikoyi too.

I hope it will be ready this coming week.

Thanks for the feedback.

I have applied for my passport since November 26th, and I have not gotten it. Its beginning to look fishy as my link keeps saying they dont have booklets yet, then he said they have only printed to 21st of November. This is annoying. Has anyone gone through this? Does it really take this long?
Same story in Ilorin.. Almost 2 month now.
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by PremiumTrends(m): 12:45pm On Feb 16

I was alausa yesterday for capturing, you won't believe I couldn't find my file....later around 3pm, I was told my file is still in confirmation/verification room ....after a week....d whole system is rigged...

I was told to come back on Friday but I will wait for another 7 days , that is when I will show them my madness if my file is not yet ready..

*Is it a crime to pay online? If they don't fancy the online stuff, they should remove it from the official site ..

First thing they will ask you is (is it self processing) just say YES and watch how the officials will leave you like you don't exist at all.....some will even tell you to leave the office and stay outside,trust me they won't attend to you no more unless you Roger them.....

I almost got angry yesterday.....This country is messed up....

I will go back next Wednesday to see if they are truly crazy ...

Infact, I am still still angry


Go to the asst comptroller aiyegbusi office in alausa downstairs to report if its not ready. Also contact nigimmigration on twitter ahead and report them. Let them know u will drag headoffice into it if they dont do the right thing and watch tgem rearrange themselves.

Those guys at Alausa are rogues, it's better to do it at Ikoyi but nevertheless this your issue is strange o, I was also told my payment didn't drop, I complained on twitter and it was sorted out. Please also do so on their twitter page. But most of them were willing to help anytime I informed them that I was self processing

On Wednesday, if they try anything stupid.... twitter straight

Some states do have liaison offices in Lagos that also issue it, Find out for yours.
