Buhari Receives New Nigerian Passport With 10-year Validity + New Prices Of Passport

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, launched a new enhanced security Nigerian passport with 10 years validity.






Buhari was immediately issued his own 10–year validity passport, by the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mohammad Babandede.


Speaking to State House correspondents later, Babandede explained that the new passport has enhanced features, which will make it easier for security management.


He said the new passport with 32 pages will cost N25,000 and $130 abroad; the 64 pages with five years expiration time will cost N35,000 and $150 abroad while the 64 pages with 10 years validity will cost N70,000 in Nigeria and $230 abroad.


“The new passport reform programme is weather friendly, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) compliant, it has polycarbonate technology that eliminates damage, enhanced security features and save Nigerians in the Diaspora time of frequent visit to Nigerian Embassy among others.

    7. sorry aunty, lol. I can’t jealous you for first timer passport na. But to answer your questions, the Swedish passport is dark red, like a maroon colour. Switzerland is bright red like the one in our president’s hand in the pictures. But the red you see in the pictures is for the president, VP and the like. Don’t forget, the colour of Swedish passport used to be blue before it was changed to dark red - EU things. The colour of the old Nigerian passport was green and the one we still use is green. The difference is that the former was not a digitalized one. Meaning, your physical signature is exactly the same as the one you signed using the regular ink pen and so it appears on the printed passport. The cover page had coat of arm but the new one has ECOWAS map with Nigeria boldly coloured in it. The digital one has a computerized signature. You use a computerized pen on a computerized electronic pad.
      In summary, the Swedish passport doesn’t look like the one in the picture. But Switzerland, yes. Maybe I should add, in case you don’t know, there are several countries with blue, navy blue, black, red, maroon passports. And they are ABROAD passports, lol.

  2. So what happens if someone wants to renew his/her old passportπŸ˜•πŸ˜• they didn't say anything about that

    1. Obviously, you have never had a passport or traveled abroad with a passport hence this question. How do you renew a passport if not by getting a new one? Before digital passport, passports are renewed for five years by a stamp to extend it by another five years. Now the ecowas digital passport is five years validity. It expires, you are issued a new one. If lost, you apply with more documents like police report, affidavit, then new application. You are captured again. Abeg no ask question whe go make people laugh you o.

    2. Na only myopic people like you go laugh am. There is no shame in not owning a passport if you do not have a need for it.

    3. Yes o, there is no shame in not owning a passport o. But somehow, person suppose ask question whe make sense na. Na public space be this o.

      Delete
    4. Some of you are too extra. I see nothing in the person asking about renewals. Why shame this person for asking a legitimate question. There is nothing shameful about having never traveled out of one's country, even ppl in countries with powerful passports have never left their country, not everybody is interested in traveling and it doesn't make you less of a person for not caring about traveling.

    1. 70k for passport with 64 pages isn’t too much. You pay more than this amount just for six months visitor visa for some countries. You pay more than this amount for such passport in the US, if you calculate the exchange rate.

      Delete
    2. You say US. Does nigeria look like they have such standard of living to issue such expensive passports to ordinary citizen? A country where majority of its people live on less than a dollar per day. Shio

      Delete
    3. And you think it is that easy for every US citizen to go get passport right? Or you think it is that easy for US citizens to travel outside the US? Going by your calculation of a country’s indices, I see that you don’t even get it. For example, You cannot rent a house for a month in the US with $100 but you can use that amount to rent a good ‘not-bad’ place in Nigeria. This example is to make you understand the foundational basis of calculating economic indices of countries. What you should learn is understanding how much value the money has in a country like Nigeria and not not basing its economic value in the US. I can buy a can of coke, egg roll and biscuit in Nigeria with a dollar but the same thing will cost more like 4 dollars in the US. Think before you comment.
