The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has announced plans to start issuing the new enhanced 10-year e-Passport to eligible applicants at its Ikoyi office in Lagos.

According to the NIS Comptroller-General, Muhammad Babandede, the roll-out has already commenced in Abuja, but issuance of the new passport will begin on Tuesday (today), June 25.

The NIS on April 29 announced the commencement of registration for the issuance of its new 10-year e-passports to Nigerians.

The e-passport was launched by President Muhammadu Buhari on January 16.

The cost of the 32-page five-year standard passport is N25, 000, while the 64-page five-year standard passport costs N35,000.

The 64-page 10-year standard passport costs N70,000.

The roll-out has already been done in Abuja by President Buhari

“We hope the governor will come on June 25, 2019 and work with the Assistant Comptroller-General here to roll out the new passports in Ikoyi,” the official said.

The NIS boss said Lagos is the second place the new enhanced passport is being rolled out.

Mr Babandede said It is mandatory for applicants to first possess a National Identity Number, and also be conscious of their identity on both documents.

“We call on Nigerians to be very conscious of their identity. You cannot get this passport unless you have a National Identity number, without that, don’t even approach it.”
