What wrong with ikoyi office fgs?

Since June 28 I captured, my passport (32 pages) not still ready I even tried checking my application status online today but the response I was getting repeatedly was “Application Not Found” and I checked the same portal eailer last month it took me to my passport status but now it saying “Application Not Found”
“Strictly DIY”
Is anyone experiencing the same problem/delay?

Update ***

This morning I received a message from NIS that my passport is ready for collection (On messager) after sending messages since last week
I was asked to make time and go for collection this week, when I collect the passport ill quote this thread
“Strictly DIY”
Below is the attached image of our conversation

You should be able to retrieve the application as long as you have paid.

And it expires after a year I think, so you have to get the passport in that time frame.

Hi, thanks for your help.

Been able to get through to NIS and a refund has been initiated(this was on Thursday). I'm hoping Saanapay does the refund this new week.

Which of the payment platform is best for payment, btw.

Not sure I want to use Saanapay again.

I sent them a mail, which they are yet to reply, if NIS can be quick with response, I'm wondering what's delaying them

The same thing happened to me on Friday when I made payment using Saanapay.

Funny how I saw your post about the hitch you faced whilst using Saanapay before I paid but I thought it was a minor glitch since I've read posts of about 2 or 3 users here who used Saanapay to effect their payment. Hopefully I get my refund this week too and initiate another payment using a different platform

Same reason I used them.

I've mailed them twice, I think and not a single response. My fear is delay, I'm not in a haste but one should not stay too long on this stage

Will send a mail by Monday and copy NIS

What platform will you be using next time?
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by mimzzz: 6:07pm On Oct 09, 2021
Hi. So sorry about that
I think there's someone who posted in the past about having a problem with saanapay and they just sorted out the payment rather than send the refund to their account. I checked saanapay page and they say you can chat them on the weekends. Might be worth a try.
I used innovest1pay successfully though .

Hi all, I changed my NIMC phone number almost 2 months ago, and up until now, the change has not reflected. I am still seeing that my old number attached to my nin.
Please has anyone encountered this problem before?

When I changed my number, it took 3 months to reflect on every aspect of their database hence I finally was able to use it to sign in to their mobile app after 3 months.

You can go ahead and use the new number for anything. It doesn't matter except you need to sign in to the mobile app.

Do I need to go with a guarantor's data to the immegration office? Or will they have it there?

I want to apply for a fresh international passport. I don't want to go through the DIY route.

If you are using an agent, they usually have guarantors. Infact, almost every document you need, they can provide.

Please, who has valid info on the availability of passport booklet in Benin city, Edo state office.

My contact keep saying no booklet since forever.

I want to know if anyone has been issued passport from the Benin office recently.

Thanks �

I don't have an agent. I want to go to the office directly.

SweetOnugbo:

If you go to the office directly and will get an agent there, they can provide you with a guarantor. But if you already have someone who can be your guarantor, I suggest you do all that relates to it yourself.

Legalizing the filled guarantor form in a court or notary office should not cost more than 1k.

Attach the passport of your guarantor on the form when you go to legalize it so they can stamp on it as well.



Personally, I am still in the process of getting mine done and here is how I did it.

I paid online and had all my documents ready including the guarantor form. Then, I went to the office at Alausa and approached different officers. Most were reluctant since I have everything I need but one lady agreed and collected 15k from me to FasTrack the process because I told her I need the passport in one week.

I was supposed to capture the same day but I made changes on my NIN the day before that had not reflected so I captured 2 days later.

Now, on the NIS portal, it says my application has been approved.

According to NIS customer care, it means my application has been approved and my passport will be included for production.

They gave me a date of December 6 to collect my passport in the capturing office but I am assuming that it is just for formalities and that my passport will be ready next week.

In all, I only saved slightly over 10k by having all my documents ready while still using an agent (because they charge 65k for 5 years 64 Pages which is what I did).

Hopefully, my passport is ready next week as planned.

Lol, I know I said too much but from what I understand, you are doing something similar to what I did so I just wanted you to get a clearer picture of how it has gone for me so you can make a more informed decision.

Have you started the process already or the person is just saying you should chill first as there is no booklet?
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by Odosa1(m): 4:11pm On Oct 10, 2021
I have done capturing since 24th of August, but yet to get a passport.

If I get refunded, then I would definitely use innovate

I applied for a passport and it is ready now. However, I am physically unavailable to pickup myself at the moment. Does anyone know if the passport can be picked up by proxy and what it would require because, I urgently need it at my current location and taking a trip to the location I got it at is not convenient/ possible at the moment. Kindly advise.
Re: Cost Of A Nigeria International Passport by tutuwater(m): 9:02am On Oct 11, 2021
I don't think they allow people to pick it up by proxy.
Even their officers won't pick it up for you.

Mine hasn't been resolved. NIS actually said they initiated a refund so don't know. Saanapay isn't even responding. The chat sent on Saturday was replied on Sunday with 'send a mail to us', till now, nothing from them

Thank you
