Hi All on this thread,

stop paying agents. Changing anything on international passport can be done through the portal.

google nigerian immigration portal, go to the site, apply for a change of whatever , fill the form, pay the fee of about 15 or 17k online, get an appointment date immediately and go for the interview.

Make sure you go with the necessary documents for the interview and you would be fine.

you do not need to spend more than 17k to get all these done the right way.

i am applying for a name change and it is all i did. my interview is next week. and No you dont have to go to abuja, i am doing this in port harcourt.

You are wrong. You must go to Abuja if you're changing Date of Birth.

I hope it can be changed. I want to change my date of birth but most people are saying I have to go to Abuja and spend over 100k.

Don't mind the poster. You can never get it done online if you are changing Date of Birth. You can only do that online if it is change of name. But you MUST go to Abuja/appear in person if it is Change of Date of Birth.

Some even came from the embassy recently for a meeting with the Nigerian ambassador and it was the same story. They must go to Abuja. They wish they can do it but they can't.

I battled this for good 4 years with ambassador, top Passport officers with high ranks with even connection. They confirmed that it can never be done anywhere except Abuja. I traveled to Nigeria because of this and get it done. Don't let anybody deceive you. Some will tell you that they did it and they posted it to them, but trust me you will regret it if you use that outside Nigeria especially for immigration residency purpose. A lot of Nigerians are stuck here and can't go home because of this as the one they first did and posted to them were fake and almost put them in trouble here.

If you are not in Nigeria and you are yet to get your residency because of this, if you can obtain travel document that can take you to Nigeria and take you back to your place of residence, I will advice you to go home and do it. It's simple to do in Abuja if you have the money.

And finally, it actually happened to my wife but not me. So I traveled to Nigeria myself to verify and arrange everything just to make sure that it is %100 guarantee for my wife before she depart. I negotiated immediately and i paid all necessary fees in Abuja and was %100 sure, then I told my wife to fly over immediately and we did it.

Don't let anybody deceive you.

Having ur data mixed up is the bearer's cause since it is often required u read through ur data before its sent. How then is it the fault of ur agent?
Its possible to change sha when u meet the right person
Re: Changing The Date Of Birth On My International Passport by Saemyhal(m): 2:33am On May 16, 2018
I thoroughly understand this but in my defense I was but a kid when said passport was issued

Good morning everyone, please I have this challenge and i'll appreciate your useful responses.

I applied for my first international passport( e-passport) about 6years ago but because of the information I didn't have then, I used 1986 as my year of birth but now I want to change it to the normal 1985 because all other credentials have 1985.

I waited for the passport to expire which it has last February, so i'm willing to do a new one but all those I spoke to said I can't change the year of birth because once I do the BIOMETRICS, it will bring up all my data even if I don't show my expired passport

Please kindly advise on the steps to take to change this or even contacts that can help. I don't even mind going to Abuja for this thing to change.

thanks house. This is what ignorance can cause.

cc. Justwise
Have you rectified it now?
Re: Changing The Date Of Birth On My International Passport by BamBella(m): 4:46pm On May 22, 2018
Hello house! I have the same issue too. I've done the biometrics two weeks ago (08/05/2018). But up till this moment I haven't heard anything from the officer handling mine.

I just want to be sure how long it takes to correct the DOB on the passport so as not to be worried. Thanks!

I finally changed the date of birth in my passport. It was not as hard as i thought, infact I got my passport changed within 1 week without paying for express, It was God's favour all through and perfect timing.
Please how did you go about it? I'm interested
