FG plans 12 more visa centres, passport home delivery

The Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has said Nigerians will have their passport delivered to their homes, offices, and other locations of their choice from February 2024.

Speaking on Monday at the opening ceremony of the International Week of the University Of Lagos titled, ‘Breaking the Borders of Partnership,’ Tunji-Ojo said by January next year, Nigerians would be able to complete the application process online.

He said, “We have commenced the automation of our end-to-end passport application process, and we have given a timeline from which Nigerians will begin to experience the ‘sweet experience’.“By implication, Nigerians will not need to wait longer than two weeks before they get their passport.

By January next year, Nigerians will be able to complete this application process online, and by February next year, with collaboration and partnership with other relevant stakeholders, Nigerians will have their passports delivered to their homes, offices, and other locations of their choice.

“This, of course, would be extended to our visa application process. We are deploying technology throughout the entire process to make it as seamless as possible.

To achieve this, we have set everything in motion to open 12 more visa application centres across the world.

In this regard, we are also working on strengthening our visa-on-arrival policy.
