Where you can Obtain NIS Passport in Nigeria

Last updated on November 21st, 2018 at 11:51 am

There are 41 NIS passport offices in Nigeria where you can process and obtain your (international) passport.

Passport is popularly known as International Passport in Nigeria, but in real sense, the addition of “International” to “Passport” makes it tautology. In a recent article, Akeem Lasisi of The Punch says passport is passport, there is nothing like international passport.

Whatever name you choose here is a complete list of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) passport offices across Nigeria.

Before that…

Does NIS has passport agents in Nigeria?

Only NIS is empowered and have the authority to issue passport to any person willing to travel out of Nigeria.

NIS doesn’t have accredited passport agents anywhere, because it is a document that can not be obtained by proxy. Your fingerprints and facial capturing is required for you to obtain a passport.

In our upcoming post we’ll tell you the actual cost of passport in Nigeria as against the official price you see on NIS website and other websites. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, let’s get started….

NIS passport offices in Lagos State

Considering the fact that Lagos is the commercial capital of Nigeria, the number of applicants for passport within a week could be higher than the total number of such applications processed in Osun for a month. There may not be a statistics to back this up, but a visit to one of the offices of NIS in 2017 shows that Lagos is indeed like a country.
