Nigerian E-Passport requirements for Children and Minors
E-Passport requirements for Children/Minors
The Nigerian e-Passport application Process for a minor differed from the Application Process for an Adult.
A Minor is a child between the ages of 0 years to 17 years of age on or before the date of application at the Nigeria Immigration Service Passport Office or at the Nigerian Embassy or Consulate Passport Office.
By the virtue of the Document Requirements, a minor must certify to the Nigeria Immigration Services that they meet all the requirements as set out for the Processing of a Nigerian e-Passport Application.
Booking an Appointment for the submission and Picture taking in either the Nigerian Embassy or Nigerian High Commission is the most important part of the Nigerian e-Passport Application Process.
Please NOTE that without an ONLINE Appointment booked directly from such websites, you would not be attended to. It is very Vital that you check the Nigerian Embassy's website in your Country of domicile for such facilities.
