      Hello Emeka!

      The Nigeria immigration is dealing with some challenges regarding printing of the passport booklet.

      A report by premium times said that there is an issue of bad contract between the Nigerian government and their passport booklet printing company that has drastically caused booklet shortages all over the world.

      This is what many have been subjected to. We’re sorry that you have to go through this.

      There was a report of new booklets last week. What you can do is call the immigration office to confirm whether or not your passport booklet has been printed.

      Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need further clarification.
