3. You may be asked to visit for data collection. These appointments are scheduled from Tuesday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm.

4. After your passport has been processed, you will receive a phone call to pick it up. This is scheduled on Mondays and Fridays, between 9am and 2pm.

Documents needed

Here is a list of documents that will be required at the Mission when you apply for renewal.

  • Passport Payment Slip
  • Passport Acknowledgement Slip
  • Copy of online application form (signed and dated)
  • One copy of Passport photograph
  • Expired Nigerian Passport (If not presented will be considered lost) and photocopy of passport data page (which clearly shows photograph, full name and date of birth)
  • Every applicant must appear in person at the Consulate for finger and thumb printing necessary to produce the E-passport.

Before you go ahead and renew your Nigerian passport, here are some things to keep in mind.

1. You must fill out your online application and print it out. The filled application along with the printed page of the payment receipt page must be carried to the Mission as internet services will not be provided there.

2. If your passport is full and has been issued five years ago, or your pages have been filled out – you need to re-issue your passport. If your passport is less than ten years old and filled out – you need to renew your passport. If your passport is lost, missing, defaced or burnt – you need a replacement.
