Spread the love

The Nigerian government has extended the validity period of the country’s international passport as part of the reforms in the aviation industry. The present government led by Mohammad Buhari bids to change the e-passport, by extending the validity period from 5 years to 10 years.

The Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede, who disclosed this extension on a Channels television program, reviews the reason behind the extension. Muhammed Babandede said the passport was extended from 5 to 10 years to reduce the stress Nigerians go through in order to renew expired passport.

“One of the reforms he (President Buhari) has approved is that we would improve the quality and security of our passport booklets.

“Ten years after the enrolment of the e-passport system, we need to improve the security features. You can’t keep documents for 10 years without seeing decreased values in them, so we are improving the security features which would raise the standards of the passports,” he said

The Comptroller-General of Nigerian Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede, also noted that the new passport with 10 years validity period will cost more. Although he did not specify the amount that will be paid for the new passport but warned new applicants to get ready to pay more for the passport.

When team checked the Nigeria Immigration official website, we found out that the price for the current passport varies according to age and booklet types.
