FG Digitalizes Payment For Nigerian Passport Application

The Federal Government has declared that the payments for the Nigerian Passport Application has been digitalised, advising citizens to avoid patronising officials when applying.

This was disclosed on Monday by Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior in Ibadan, Oyo the State.

“Part of the reforms is the migration of passport application and payments to digital platforms. I will implore applicants to stop patronising touts and our officials directly. Follow the process we put in place. Apply for passports and pay online. The only engagement with our staff is the enrolment of your biometrics. Patronising touts and passport office officials doesn’t always end well," he disclosed.

Speaking on the new enhanced passport, the minister ended saying, the enhanced e-Passport is a great improvement adopted as a step towards curbing forgery, impersonation and other forms of travel document fraud.
