FG approves 10-year renewal period for Nigerian passports


By Clare Nwaiwu

Nigerians can now have their passport for ten years before renewing it, as against the previous five year period the Comptroller General of Nigerian Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede has revealed.

Babandede who made the revelation during a media chat, said the Federal Government approved a 10-year validity period for Nigerian passports.

According to him, the validity was extended with a view to reduce the stress Nigerians go through every five years to renew their passports.

The Immigration boss said; “One of the reforms 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.

“President Buhari has equally approved 10-year validity for passports which is great news. When the report comes, passports will be valid for 10 years which is great news especially for adults from the age of 18 and above.

“Though people will pay more, if they can pay more and get the booklets quickly, it’s good with improved security for 10 years validity. They would pay more but the document would be available, that’s good”.
