Following an agreement reached by National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) with the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to improve the quality of service, accuracy, and speed of passport services through the timely verification of the National Identification Number (NIN).

Nigerians are to pay a new National Identification Number NIN verification/integration fee of N1,000 for International passport application, renewal and issuance for Nigerians residing in Nigeria.

In a statement signed by the Head, Corporate Communications, Kayode Adegoke, on Monday, the Commission said the new arrangement is in furtherance of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy’s directive to streamline passport application, renewal, and issuance processes.

Adegoke said, every Nigerian who reside in other African countries would pay $3 (or its equivalent in other currencies) while those elsewhere in other continents will pay $10 (or its equivalent in other countries) for the same purpose.

According to the statement, Adegoke said:

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) wishes to inform the general public that it has devised and agreed on a framework with the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to significantly improve the quality of service, accuracy, and speed of passport services through the timely verification of the National Identification Number (NIN).

This new arrangement is in furtherance of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy’s directive to streamline passport application, renewal, and issuance processes.

Consequently, a NIN Verification fee would be charged for each Nigerian passport application for this service.

The new NIN service, fees, and NIS process is expected to go begin on 1st April 2023.
