Shouldn't be more than ₦2,000. I did mine at a government hospital for less than that. Plus they laminate it for you.

Top of the morning.
I would be renewing my passport soon. I checked the immigration site and the field for NIN isn't compulsory, but I've seen posts here saying that it's mandatory although it was in respect to a fresh application.
Please I would like to get a definitive, if possible from someone whom has done theirs recently.

Don't mind him. He knows the booklets are now available and that's why he made mention of calling your contact.

Just wait until Thursday, then go back there and check.

Today is Thursday and I'm at the passport office presently. I was told it's not yet ready. I wonder how long it'll take for my passport to be ready......as I'll be relocating to the island soon....dunno what to do....since I don't have any contact there. All my tweets to NIS on twitter are being ignored.

I don't have issues with NIN....I have my NIN since May 2019. I did my capturing successfully and my application was approved.

By the way, I live in Ikeja..... and I applied at Alausa passport office.....will be relocating to the Island soon....as a result of job transfer.

Only God knows how long I'll wait for my passport to be ready.

And they keep writing AA on my collection slip.....who knows what that means? I'm certain the delay in my passport collection has nothing to do with NIN.

You can't be sure about your NIN status.
The fact that you've had your since since 2019 doesn't matter. After capturing, sometimes, your NIN doesn't automatically drop via immigration portal. Sometimes, it takes a little time to appear and if it doesn't drop, there's are no two ways about getting your passport.

Now let me ask, when you captured, did you get a printed slip from the immigration officer or you just got a handwritten note?

Lol, I got a printed slip.

Others got a handwritten note because of their NIN ish....

So, u see it's not NIN that's causing the delay.

I have two questions.
First, can I act as a guarantor for my 2 years old daughter?

Secondly, I will be renewing my passport for the second time, I didn't use guarantor the first time I renew. Will I need a guarantor?

Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by Growingboi(m): 8:01pm On Feb 25
Thank you so much for this.


Oggg:

Pls put the surname u want on the new passport on this form.. like the last person said it should be ur husband’s surname as you are doing a change of name.
Also every passprt app form has space for maiden name.. check well
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by Bossman(m): 8:13pm On Feb 25
Make sure the name on your NIN matches the name on your passport information EXACTLY. otherwise, it will not drop. The badly written software NIMC is using matches letter for letter on the names, without room for any difference.

The person could be right. What he got at the rate is attestation letter for persons above 18 years but if you are less than that age, you could get it 2k like the boss Oggg said.

You can call this number on their Twitter handle for Lagos residents. Ensure you negotiate very well and feed us back as well. I have called him and negotiated too.

Hello guys,

So I'm getting a fresh passport and I'm using the DIY method. I just made payment not long ago and it states my interview date is 30th March.

1. I'm guessing this is the capture date right? And can I go to ikoyi before the stated date ?

2. Since I'll still have to go to court after doing affidavit for birth attestation to endorse my grantor's form, can't I do both endorsement and attestation same day ?

Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by Confide22: 2:20am On Feb 26
So I'm back to thank the brains behind this DIY method for all the heads up and the assistance throughout my application process.

So I applied and paid for my passport online (26k) on the 1st of Feb and went to the NIS office on the 3rd cos I had to fill and stamp the guarantor's form before going there (spent a total of 1k, 5h to print the forms and buy file and all, and 5h for court stamp). I submitted my form on the 3rd, and my interview/capturing date was on the 10th (You guys remember that I came back to rant here that I couldn't capture on that day after spending the whole day there simply cos my guarantor's form has only one passport photograph).

So I went back on the 11th with the extra passport, and when it was almost my turn to capture, they complained about poor network. Since I had other things to do, I left the office and came bk on the 12th. Finally captured on the 12th, and was given a collection on the 18th. These guys suddenly started being nice after my capturing ooo. I ended up making a lot of friends that day and on my collection day... grin Went back on the 18th and was issued my passport within 5mins.

So I ended up spending approximately 27k, (as against 55k an agent told me, and gave me 14 days before collection) and less than two weeks (if you minus the two days delay they caused me) to get my passport.

My advice? They'll definitely try to ridicule you cos you applied online and won't fetch them money, but don't mind them. Stand your grounds and face whoever needs to be faced, they attend to you Las Las cos they value their jobs.!

PS: I applied for fresh issue(32 pages, 5yrs) and in Portharcourt.


I'm happy I found this thread.! cheesy

Go there before the date. Go on Tuesday and tell them you need it early. Ensure your NIN is okay
