NIS said the passport comes in 3 categories, which are 32-page 5-year validity, 64-page 5-year validity and 64-page 10-year validity.

The steps to get the passport are:

  1. Visit passport.immigration.gov.ng
  2. Fill form and make payment online
  3. After successful payment book appointment date.
  4. Print appointment slip
  5. Visit pre-selected mission and consulate with all required documents
  6. NIN is mandatory for applying for the epassport

NIS said timeline for processing epassport is 5 weeks for fresh applications and 3 weeks for renewals.
