The Comptroller-General of this service, Muhammad Babandede, stated the portal site became effective from 12 midnight Tuesday.
The passport portal site was closed on May 17, after a directive from the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.
The ministry had led the portal’s closed to permit the support to clear the backlog of software in issuing centres throughout the nation in the last couple of months.
Mr Babandede further clarified that a new passport program and payment plan had started using the reopening of this portal site.
“Programs and obligations for passport services shall be created via the service site, www.immigration.gov.ng. Applicants will be expected to go to the portal site to upload and apply their service files for processing and checking.
“A chat room centre to guide applicants through the application and payment procedure was given on the portal site.
“Upon successful programs, applicants will make their online booking interview/enrollment appointment any day, time, and place they consider suitable.
“The brand new deadline for passport creation and issuance following a successful registration at the chosen issuing centre will likely be six months to get new applications and three months for re-issue (renewal programs ).”
The comptroller-general included that applicants could be contacted if their passports were prepared through email addresses and telephone numbers they provided during the program.
