If what you want to use the passport for is urgent, and you have an official document to prove that it's urgent you can go to Ikoyi and see what happens.
I just got my file, attached the school slip, and submitted it to the Oga there, and they did it the same day. I went back to take it on Friday 11th.
I went there 9th.
All the same, na still God.

Hi guys. Quick question.

I recently went to renew my passport at Ikoyi. It is still valid for 8 months but I was able to convince them to renew it.

After the data capture, the old passport was returned to me intact. Aren't they supposed to cancel it?

Now while I am waiting for them new passport to be ready (no booklet), I need to certify some academic documents at the embassy and will have to present my passport. Can I use the old passport?

So I was at NIS Ikoyi office today for fresh passport enrollment. I received a text message and an email from them since Monday to go for the enrollment but my interview was slated for tommorow being Friday.

I got there around 7:35 AM pretty early, I saw crowd just at the entrance. I walked up to an immigration officer wanting to know the opening time and where I can get the guarantor's form notarized. He told me they resume by 8 but the notary office is somewhere in IGBOSERE. I just smiled, thanked him, logged on to NL reading with the speed of light because I remember reading a comment that said we could get the the form notarized in the passport office. I found the comment and my conviction became stronger.

Lesson 1: not every immigration officer know what goes on in their office. Some are practically clueless.

As at 7:50 AM, I was having chitchat with one those touts at the gate and I asked him if he knew where the notary office was located. He looked at me obviously confused and asked who was running the process for me. I said I am doing it myself, do you have a problem with that? He looked angered and went into a 3 minutes "shalaye" of how you need someone who knows someone to run the parole for you and that if you do it yourself, your passport wouldn't be process and even if it gets processed, it would be lost in transit (whatever that means). I smiled grin baded him farewell and returned in time to listen to the officer calling out the number for those who were for the passport collection. The time was 7:57AM.

Lesson 2: whatever you do, ensure to do your due diligence because people are willing to pounce on your ignorance all for material gain.

After calling different actions from national ID enrollment, passport collection, I didn't hear fresh passport application. I walked up to one of the officers to ask, he said I would have to wait oh. So I chilled while observing everything happening around me. The level of "man-know-man" that goes on in our public offices can't be described but best experienced. At exactly 8:20 AM I didn't hear anything from them, with anger in my bones, I walked to one of the officers, showed him the SMS I got and he was apologetic about delaying me since. He quickly fixed me into one of the lines, got my temperature checked and I was inside. Knowing I hadn't notarized my form, I asked for directions and located the place but unfortunately, it was closed (this was what prompted my initial comment above). In the process of waiting, I saw a guy who came for the same purpose holding a white file with "32 page passport" boldly written on it with a marker. I asked where he got that file from and he said SERVICOM. I moved swiftly to SERVICOM, greeted the officer on duty and told him why I was there. He gave me a form, 4 pages to make photocopy. I went outside the office and did the photocopy for #50 per page. Went back in, filled the form accordingly and returned to the female officer he directed me to. She helped arrange the file and when she noticed I hadn't notarized the form, I quickly told her the office was locked. She picked her phone, made a call and told me the man in question is available and I that I should go ASAP before the queue becomes long. I went there, met a small crowd but with confidence, went to the front of the queue and said I was from officer **** since I had memorized her name from the name tag. I was attended to quickly (paid #500 for this service) and returned the notarized form to her, she took her time to arrange the documents and gave me a brown file (picture attached). She then told me to go to a office opposite hers and give to the officer on duty and I should always ask the next step after each officer had looked through the file (she was nice and very professional). Did as she as said and the woman pointed me towards the LONG ROOM. From one pit hole to another, I submitted and collected the file after certain things had been looked at. Just at the end of the LONG ROOM, the woman on duty asked me why I was processing it myself and not using an officer which happens to be the norm. I told her I love to do things myself cheesy. She smiled and returned my file to me. Knowing that was the last stage before the computer enrollment, I asked her if it was possible to get captured today. She said YES if I can find her something. I smiled and respectfully told her that I wouldn't because I was cash strapped. Looking at her name tag, I knew she came from my state and I used that as a way to get her talking after all (where am I rushing to?). We chitchatted about some random things before she asked if I was still interested in capturing today. A big YES, she then handed me over to one officer Y**** who ensured the capturing was done without those officers slotting their candidates in my front. At the end of the capturing, I was given a collection slip (picture attached) to check back in 2 weeks time. The officer who did the capturing was professional in his dealings and was nice in explaining somethings to me. I returned the file to SERVICOM.

Lesson 3: learn to find a point of connection with someone, it could open doors and make a seemly impossible task easy.

For the documents required for this process, please look at the picture attached.

I left there exactly 9:45 AM. Total time spent, 1 hour 45 minutes 33 seconds (don't ask me how I knew the seconds part). It was easy and straight forward, and I couldn't see the wisdom in paying more to a certain officer when you can actually do the whole process from start to finish yourself.

Online payment = #25,000
Bank charges = #1,000
Notary fee = #500
Photocopy = #200

Total amount spent = #26,700

That's it guys. I got value from this thread and this is me giving returning the value. Anyone who wants help on how to run the fresh passport application (IKOYI office only) can send an email to me (check my signature). I would be glad to help.


A big shout-out to SaintAY for answering my questions, you are the real MVP.

I went for the enrolment and data capture last week Thursday. The collection date on the enrolment slip is 15th(yesterday). After the data capture, the SERVICOM officer told me 32 pages booklet won't be available. He told me to send my enrolment ID and name after 3 weeks to any of the numbers below to confirm if my passport is available.

Pay online, print the necessary documents and go to their office. Everything will be done, i was there today and someone doing passport renewal did everything today including capture. No 32 page booklet available only 64page so keep that in mind when paying online. After everything you’ll get a date to come back.

When you get to the passport office, just tell them at the gate that you are meeting someone and you will call the person (if not they will harass you and try to get you to pay extra). Enter and go straight to servicom, the rest of the proCess will be explained to you from servicom desk.
