Nigerian E Passport Microchips by alfablondy1: 7:28pm On Feb 19, 2016
I have heard that the e passport microchips could be damaged if stapled. where is the microchips? Is it in the data page, inner pages or the

back cover. A friend of mine new passport was stapled to the old passport at the back cover by Government Relation officer in KSA. He is worried

about possible damage to the microchips. where is the chip embedded?

I work with the Nigeria Immigration Service and I can assure u the microchips on d e passport are embedded on d back cover page.We usually advise travellers never to staple on d back cover or place d passport on ur back pocket to avoid damage.

plz i will need ur advice on this: i have a passport dat has my wrong date of birth.13/03/1989 instead of 13/03/1987, someone say i should bring 180k to help get it corrected which i am seeing to be way too expensive. the other option was to go for a new passport entirely,. my question is; like how much will i get to change the dob on a normal ground , then if i go for the second option will i be able to get a new passport wit my correct dob? thanks for ur anticipated response

Thanks for the response Mr umulobi.

(1) Does that mean the passport is automatically damaged if stapled at the back?

(11) Can he still use it to travel if the data page is ok and the microchip is damaged?

Your response will be appreciated.

No one on here can give a definite answer, they can only guess.
The passport must be taken to somewhere like an airport where they can check it BEFORE trying to travel.
Do not wait till the day of journey to find out!
