The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria wishes to inform all Nigerians that the Nigeria Immigration Service has launced the Enhanced E-Passport in all Nigerian Diplomatic Missions. This new form of passport enrollment will ensure enhanced reliability, durability and increase national security integrity of Nigerian passports. To this effect, applicants are advised to take note of the following regulations guiding the application process for the enhanced e-passport: 

National Identity Number (NIN) is a mandatory information to obtain the enhanced passport;

Information on the NIN must tally with the information on the passport for the purpose of renewal;

The information on the passport payment receipt must tally with the NIN information and the passport for renewal itself;

Applicants shall book their appointment directly at the immigration official website before coming to the Mission;

The enhanced passport requires automated payment verification, NIN and enrolled data, therefore applicants are advised to ensure that the completed online passport application data matches with the old passport data, the intended data to be enrolled and with the NIN.
