  2. Hello, I went for passport renewal in late August and my passport was sent out. Unfortunately it was returned to sender. I have asked canada post about it and they said it was not in their possession but with you. I do hope it wasn't thrown away as I need it urgently. I can't get in contact on the telephone line to make inquiries because I keep reaching voicemail. Thank you.

      So, it means, you missed out something in your address while filling it out on your self address envelop. This is always not easy to resolve because, Canada post does not send it back to us, but to one of their post offices close to the Mission. You need to pay a penalty fee to them to get it back. However, they wont let you handle it yourself. You need to get a staff at the Mission to help you pay and get back your passport. So call the office after the holidays. Applicants should always ensure they write out the complete address without missing a number or letter to avoid issues like this one. We have so many pending cases like Amarannas

    Hi Everyone, I'm looking to renew my passport. I hve submitted my application form and paid via innovate 1 services and booked my appointment on the nigeriaottawa site. there is a call out for "Printed copy of your passport interview invitation". I am confused what this passport interview invitation is? is the the appointment confirmation letter? asides the acknowledgment, and payment receipt and signed application form, i did not see any passport interview invitation. can anyone clarify please where i might get this?

    1. Abu SusanSays

      If you did not get it, it means you booked via the immigration website and not the High Commission's website . Therefore, come for your interview with the print out you got from the immigration website.

    I applied for passport renewal through the immigration website and booked an appointment from the website. I later saw the information that says I need to book the appointment on the embassy's website, which I went ahead to do. I have different dates of appointment and I am confused as to which appointment date to go with. Secondly, I received an email after booking on the embassy's website stating that I have to come in for an interview, so my question is this: is this the interview invitation that has to be printed?

    Hi Susan, I have a child and I am about to fill out the form for his passport. I saw online that he needs the Local Government Identification Letter. How can I get that of Imo State in Canada? Is it a requirement that can be waived? Can my own suffice for him as well?

    1. Abu SusanSays

      6 months ago

      Please provide a copy of the child's birth certificate and a consent letter from both parents. That should do for the Local Government identification.

    Please Susan, can you confirm the true price of the passport? On the Nigerian Immigration Services website for application, I can see $130 per passport but on this website, it is $142 for the same category. Can you please help to clarify to avoid double payment?

    1. Abu SusanSays

      6 months ago

      Please go to the immigration website to pay for a 10 or 5-year passport. The prices are different. What you see on the innovate1pay page is authentic.

    Hello, Nigeria Embassy Ottawa, I just applied for a lost Nigerian passport and paid 142 CAD for the application and booklet to be processed by the Ottawa office. However, the requirement website says, "administrative fee of 50 CAD money order & another 400 CAD receipt of payment to the Nigerian High Commission," I need the necessary information on how to make these two payments before sending my application via Canada Post. Is there any webpage that addresses this? I have searched online but found no instructions to make the payment. Thank you so much, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    1. Abu SusanSays

      1. Please, do not send your application via Canada Post. You have to come in person for your biometrics with all the documents you got online after payment. It is stated on our website here under E-passport. The 50 CAD is the non refundable administrative fee payable to the Nigeria High Commission via money order. 2. The 400 CAD is payment for a lost Case. Also payable to the High Commission via money order. You are to submit the documents and the money order to the Security man at the High Commission when you come for your biometrics. 3. Also ensure to come with a verified NIN

    1. Abu SusanSays

      4 months ago

      Yes, but you can put it all on one money order. For instance, if you are four in number, buy a money order of 200 CAD in the name of the Nigeria High Commission for all of you.

    Hello, we would like to schedule our passport renewal appointment for February 2024. Our family consists of four members, and we need to renew our passports to extend our permits, particularly my spouse's PGWP. My passport is set to expire in January 2025, my spouse's passport in March 2025, and our kids' passports in June 2025. I'm curious whether all of us will be able to undergo the biometrics capturing process on the same day, given the varying expiry dates on our passports stated.

    1. Abu SusanSays

      Yes, you can. Go to the Nigeria Immigration Website to pick your date.
