Please house, does anyone know how I can go about this. I registered my three children last week for Nigerian Passport on Nigerian Immigration Website myself, I am seriously trying to cut cost by avoiding paying agents. I have successfully done that. Now my real problem is taking them for capturing. I dont know if I will be given appointment to bring them for capturing or i should take them there and they will be captured. i dont want to take them from school twice.
thanks very much.

Things are not normal in Nigeria at all. I know things are hard, but if you want to follow due process, I'm sorry, you'll have to wait a long time.

I live in Lagos and had to travel to Abeokuta to renew my passport. Isn't that insanity? I did it in Alausa, 5 years ago, but same Alausa told me to bring ₦60,000 to get it renewed. Is that a normal thing?

In Ogun State, I paid ₦35,000 and was assisted by a high ranking immigration officer. I saw how my file was smuggled in for me to capture, while others that wanted normal route had no hope of being captured. They kept them in a hall, without treating their files.

Not true. I applied online for my kids and chose abeokuta. I printed the forms and went there with my wife and both our passports. The moment i got there they wanted to frustrate me, i raised my voice slightly and stood my ground. They said they needed a guarantor i told them i am guaranteeing my children . They said i should go to high court and swear affidavit. luckily it was a stone throw from the office. i did that within thirty minutes. They requested for state of origin....i told them since both the mother and father have passports i dont need that again. I went to the business centre close by. Luckily the woman there was the one arranging the files for the officers themselves. she arranged them for me and i took it around for signing myself. We got to the office by 12noon and by 4,30 they did capturing and i got all the passports in five days. This was last year october though i dont know about today. The truth is my own is even more genuine because the officers usually arrange fake guarantors and fake state of origin for you when you pay them. I didnt pay a kobo extra....i repeat i didnt pay a kobo extra. I may be lucky though but that was how i saved a lot on 3 children

Your first line of response is contradictory with the highlights, saying 'Not True'.

You later admitted you're lucky. Yes you're very lucky, that's it and not because you raised any alarm

Read the posts on this thread and see what people who tried normal route are going through. Despite raising alarm, they're yet to get their passports printed.

My point remains valid that things aren't normal at NIS offices Nationwide

Bros, know what you want. Most of those people you are talking about didn't read about the requirement very well on the internet before getting there so they easily chicken out. The truth is....gather those documents exactly as stipulated there. You do interview in two places after the documents are well arranged. Go to nearby cyber cafe....they already know how to arrange it. Infact, those xybercafes already have fake guarantors, fake state of origin that those officers normally use. Buy a file there. Arrange it and go inside. Once they know you know what you are doing, you won't have problem and it is not that difficult but most Nigerians are lazy then come back to blame the people exploiting them. I told you I did something you are talking about luck only. They actually wanted to frustrate but I've read all the requirements ahead and I stood my ground. For example if I don't know about it, I would get stucked at the level of state of origin.i wouldn't want to go to village to get it so I would rather pay. Those are the issues. But I told them since the two parents have passports and the names are on the birth certificate why would they need state of origin. At the court, I needed to go and queue in a bank just to pay 100 naira for affidavit, some guys were using paga close by with 500 naira. Don't discourage people. I met several people there that came all the way from Lagos as early as 8am and we all finished around the same time cos I gathered my documents myself already and paid online and printed all the acknowledgement online. I just added luck to it...but it is very doable

For where? I'm regretting not doing it in Lagos. Today makes it exactly 1 week that i captured. I was told it would be ready last friday. Told yesterday again and this morning was told that one director is not around, but if i can leave Lagos to bribe the director he would help me out. That's after paying N35,000.

I need the passport latest tomorrow evening.

They need to burn all government officials to ashes
