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

  18. Hello Enema,
    Can someone on UAE visit visa apply for Nigerian passport renewal?
    Because I have seen several write ups saying that only those with resident visa can renew their passport.. please can you give more insight on this?
    Secondly I want to ask if the passport booklet issue has been sorted out…
    Are passports being issued on time presently??.

    Thank you

    • Hi Joe! Yes! Once you have proof of Nigerian origin, you can apply for issuance or renewal of your passport at any time. Visas are not an issue to worry about.

      On the availability of booklets, there were booklets recently but I’m not sure if the issue has been totally resolved.

  19. Enema,
    With the present state of things at the Embassy in Abu Dhabi. Which has made the renewal of passport a risky project… Will you advice one to proceed with the renewal process?
    I need to get a renewed passport before the 1st of may as I need to apply for visa renewal..

    I don’t want to get stucked in the middle. Should I apply? will I get the renewed passport before may and Ramadan is coming as well.
    I am asking because you seems to be very updated with the situation around the passport and embassy thing..

    • Hi Joe!

      I think you should be able to get the renewed passport before the 1st of May. The issue with booklets unavailability is supposed to end by middle – end of March according to the acting Controller general of Immigration.

      The duration between now and the 1st of May (2 months) is enough to get the new passport.

      The earlier the better. Waste no more time to apply if you haven’t.

      Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions.

      • Thank you Enema for taking the time out to treat my queries. I appreciate and will update you if I encounter any difficulty while appropriating the process.

      • Hi enema.
        Please I’m having difficulty in making the payment for my Nigeria passport renewal here in Dubai, I’m using Nigeria atm visa card but keep showing on available details, or is because of Nigeria restrictions on foreign currency policy. Please is there any way that I can make the payment.

        • Hello Umar, please note that since the payment is in dollars, using a Nigerian naira debit card, the banks will not authorize any payment that is above $100. However, this is possible with a Nigerian debit card in foreign currency.

          Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any other information.

  22. Good evening i have my NIN now can you advise when is okay to apply for a renewal passport that expires in December

    • Hi Mosunmola! Usually, it is best to renew a passport six months before its expiration date but there is need to apply now considering the scarcity of booklet issues that one cannot say when it will end. This gives you a good interval to get your passport especially if your visa will be due for renewal in a year.

  23. How long does it takes to apply for a renewal passport, i still have more than 6months when can i apply for a new one?

    • Passport renewal duration can vary greatly based on certain conditions. In normal circumstances when there are no issues like shortage of passport booklets, it can be done in a day or two but with the prevailing shortage of passport booklet issue, it may take up to 3 months to get a new passport.

    • Hello Okafor!

      You can register for NIN at any of these centers in this link . I’m not sure if it’s entirely free but it should not be expensive.

      Yes! You should go with a document that identifies you as a Nigerian e.g passport, voters card, etc.

      Hope this helps, please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any other information.
