How To Get Your International Passport In 5 Steps by nlfpmod: 3:47pm On Jul 23, 2022
As shared by Feli Nwa, a Nigerian Twitter user.

I paid 26k online for my International Passport and got it within 6 weeks.

I didn't have to pay anybody.

Here is a thread how to get your International Passport in 5 Steps

STEP 1: Register Online

Visit the registration portal, fill in the required details and continue.

N.B The standard passport (sometimes appears as standard e-passport) is for regular citizens, while official passport is for govt officials & diplomats.

Fill in your personal details, Contact details and next of kin details.

Doing this will generate an 'Application ID' and 'Reference Number' for you.

STEP 2: Pay online.

32 pages/5yrs - 25,000
64 pages/5yrs - 35,000
64 pages/10yrs - 70,000
Plus online payment charge

STEP 3: Gather your documents.

Here are the documents you will need:
1. Letter of ID from L.G/State of Origin
2. NIN (They said or NIN, me I sha submitted both)
3. Passport Application Form (You will see an option to print the form you filled online.)
4. Passport Photograph

5. Guarantor's Form signed by commissioner of oath. (Link to form below)

Don't let big English scare you. Print the guarantor's form, and find an eligible person to sign, then go to court.

An eligible guarantor is one with an International Passport.
https://passport.immigration.gov.ng/search/VTJGc2RHVmtYMTkvb2M3QlN4YXNqaTZaNy9IRW5OeFNLZDhzZXJwU0Rxaz0%3D

Don't let the word 'court' scare you either.

Go to a high court, and ask how you can get a commissioner for oaths stamp (less than 1k)

Or pay one the people doing affidavit to process it for you (about 1500 or 2k).

6. Acknowledgement slip & evidence of payment (from the site).

7. Birth Certificate (If your DOB is from Dec 1992) But it's not heavy to carry, so sha just carry it in case.....

You are to go with both the originals and photocopy of your documents. They will see the original, return it to you, and keep the photocopy.

STEP 4: Go to the office for submission and capturing.

After registration and payment, you get an appointment date. Visit the office on that date to submit the documents you have gathered and get your biometrics captured.

Some things you should know about capturing����

1. Don't wear white: You will be captured against a white background
2. No coloured hair: You will be asked your hair colour during registration, let your hair be as close to that color as possible
3. No dropping earrings (I think it's because of the shadow)

Bonus tip: Don't wear off shoulder. I wore off shoulder for mine, and now it looks like I was not wearing anything in my passport ��.

Also, if you wear contacts, stick to your natural eye colour for the capturing.

STEP 5: Collection

After capturing, your watch (abi na count) officially begins.

Usually, you receive an SMS when it is ready. (But I didn't get any because my line was on DND sha). I sha just went after 6 weeks and got it.

A friend got hers in 4 weeks.

I had done mine in Alausa.

Between December when I got mine, and February when above mentioned friend got hers, I have noticed some improvement in the process.

E.g.
1. My own time, submission and capturing were on 2 different days. Now, it's just one day.

2. No appointment date when I did mine, I just went when I was ready, now they have appointment dates.

3. The site is much more easier to use now.

I am hopeful that when you begin your process, you will find it easier.

Yours,
Explainer Feli��

I am not doubting the OP and the process highlighted ...

But ..

I just hope it's not something he/she decides to put out to gain likes and retweets or to project the image of Nigeria's Immigration Services...


Anyways..if you want to try...try the steps highlighted, but the last time I checked...those officers will frustrate you and that journey of 6weeks she said, if you no pay extra to the officers, go take months!!!

Good luck.

Will consider this when Buhari is no more our president because he might wake up tomorrow and invalidate all passports.

Honestly sometime, we Nigerians are the ones spoiling the country. We are always in a hurry and want to get it fast through the back door by paying above the official price.

Very informative, thanks for this!

Off topic: Remember 2023 is the year to correct everything that’s wrong with the current Nigeria, vote for a credible candidate and without tribe or religion sentiment.


As for me and my family, we are fully Obidient and Yusful❤️

I got mine in a week.

Went to their office very well dressed. One officer saw me and said he has seen his wife. I said me kwa, I have seen my husband.

That was how he was carrying my file upandan.
“Capture my wife!”.

E ask for number, I give am.

Two days later I told him I want to take him for lunch. He said “haba, by 2pm? I would be working”. Of course I knew he would be working. I just wanted it to be on record that I offered. Though I knew his response before asking.

Immediately he called that my passport was out. I collected it and blocked him.
