The attention of the Comptroller General of Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede, MFR has been drawn to some media reports of persistent scarcity of Passport Booklets across our Passport Issuing Centre.
It has become important to state here that there is no scarcity of Passport Booklets across all our Issuing Centres in Nigeria and our Missions abroad. It would be recalled that on 2nd March this year, the Service did inform the public about a shortfall in the supply of the Booklets in our system. You may wish to note that the situation has since been resolved following government’s intervention and normalcy restored in all the Issuing Centres as contained in our Press Release of 6th April, 2017.
The Comptroller General is by this notice encouraging all Passport applicants to approach the nearest Passport Offices to them to process their Passports and avoid patronizing touts/agents who may make the process cumbersome. They may also wish to forward all complaints/challenges on the process to [email protected] or call 08119753844 for attention.
It is necessary to state that several Booklets have been produced but remained uncollected across our Issuing Centres. Those affected are encouraged to go for collection. The public is hereby advised to disregard the misinformation about scarcity of the Booklets and always contact us for all Immigration services.
