High Commission News!!

UPDATE ON PASSPORT APPLICATION,COLLECTION, AND FAST TRACK

URGENT NOTICE

We regret to inform all passport applicants who are willing to process the FAST Track application that the service is now suspended until further notice due to Technical Issues. The High Commission implores the applicants, should come on their actual interview date. In the meantime, applicants can check for further updates by the end of the week.

    However, High Commission has transited to the use of Point of Sale (POS) in making payments for all services rendered by the High Commission. Henceforth, payments can be made using debit cards for all transactions such as loss of Passport, Fast Track and Emergency Travel Certificates (ETC).

    In view of the foregoing, the High Commission would no longer accept postal order for all services rendered by Immigration Section.

     Also having observed that a major delay in issuance of passport of applicants is caused significantly by the wrong filling of online form by some applicants, we implore applicants to ensure that they fill the online form correctly, maintaining the same order in the arrangement of names – surname, first name and middle names in their current passports.

     In addition, with a view to ease the difficulties being encountered by Nigerians during the process of renewing their passports, especially for applicants coming from outside London, the High Commission wishes to inform that applicants are at liberty to leave behind a pre-paid special delivery self-addressed envelope to enable the Mission mail back their passport.

    For applicants with urgent need to travel before their collection date, such applicants could apply for an Emergency Travel Certificate (ETC) or use the fast-track passport service available if they so desire. The High Commission wishes to assure all of its commitment to ensuring effective service delivery, and at the same time to seek the understanding and cooperation of applicants for passports.

    Applicants are also constantly reminded to use this official facility and desist from using a third party or touts to request for passport on their behalf. However, all applicants should allow ample time to process their passport whereby passport can be renewed/reissued six(6) month before it expires. Consequently, all applicants are urged not to use the App (myVisit) for their appointment as its no longer valid for appointment booking. Applicants are also advised to come strictly on the interview date printed on passport payment slip.

Thank you.
