      Renewal takes 3-4weeks. Please call the office. The number is on the website.

        My old passport has damilola as my middle name as oluwa was omitted but my NIN has oluwadamilola will this be an issue as I just applied for a new passport. And NIN is required and all other documents have oluwadamilola

        1. Abu SusanSays

          10 months ago

          You need to go back to NIN to fix it. It will affect your renewal process. And if you want to change the name on your passport to reflect what you have on your NIN, then you need to get in touch with NIS Abuja for a name change.

            Plz, there was a mixed up with my date of birth... And that was what's on my nin and I am thinking if I could back it up with affidavit instead of changing the date of birth..

Simple things that should be taken care of at the consulate office, someone need to reach out to Abuja? Of what use are the are the embassies? We need to change for good because, we do things as if we are cursed. We just make life difficult for Nigerians. Call any number shown on the website, you can never get to talk to a human being.

    I have tried to make a change to my passport for years now, I kept being told to go to Abuja because it's a change of first name. The world has evolved from thinking that only a marriage necessitate a change in name. This name change has been done over 10 years ago, hence ALL of my documents both Canada and Nigeria (BVN, NIN, marriage etc) all have my updated first name except my Nigerian passport which still carries the old name that I no longer go by. It's absolutely ridiculous that I am being referred to Abuja just for a simply first name change.

          10 months ago

          Hello Abu Susan How are you doing today? Please I need clarity on why my passport renewal is taking so long and also if there is a fast-track process. I applied in 2022, on 28th December, I had my biometrics on the same day, filled all necessary documents in your Ottawa office, and submitted it there alongside the change of name certificates, affidavit, and forms. I also sent in proof of my corrected NIN name change, reflecting my new name for the renewal. This slip which is proof of NIN change was made available to me from NIS Abuja showing the status of my name as corrected on their end. Now, the problem is I have not gotten my passport to date or any clear update on the process even with your email responses. I need my renewed passport urgently. Is there a way to reach out to anyone else on this matter to escalate it or get clarity on what is holding this up? Right now, it feels like an indefinite wait and when I track the courier side, I get a message that there is no registered parcel for my tracking number. Which means it is not in transit yet.

          1. Abu SusanSays

            8 months ago

            Please write your full name, date of capture, application ID, Reference number and a short note stating your case. All in one document, not in bits. I will send it to the officers. Also add your update NIN if you had issues previously

    Hi, please I was at the embassy to do my passport in February but couldn't do my passport cause of NIN issues. I have sorted out my NIN issue, do I need need to reschedule an appointment again ( by the way, the website is not letting me reschedule for some reason. POV: I already made the required payments online and the in-person $50 money order and was at the embassy before and the guy at the door told me I just have to come in without booking an appointment. I just want to make sure before coming.

    1. Abu SusanSays

      11 months ago

      Yes, you can come in but ensure it is not a Monday and a public holiday. The immigration website does not allow applicants to reschedule appointments.

  12. OESays

    11 months ago

    With regard to matching the data on the NIN and passport, what will be the advice for someone with a slight difference in the first name on both documents. If I do a name change here in Canada, can I then apply for a new Nigerian passport or does the change have to be done in Nigeria? What about the publishing in the dailies? The names on my NIN, Nigerian driver's licence etc matches, it is just the passport that has the slight difference. I wouldn't go the other direction now (changing my other documents instead of the passport). something like this: NIN: Osato Francis Ekoh Passport: Osatohanmwen Francis Ekoh

    1. Abu SusanSays

      11 months ago

      All your documents must match what is on your NIN. Anything different means you have to go for an update.

        Please I'm still waiting for your response to my question below. My NIN was already issued in 2017 in my marital name but my passport was still in my maiden. Now the passport in my maiden name has expired and i want to renew it to match the name on my NIN. Please what can I tell the person at the door so they can allow me in? Should I tell them I'm doing change of data, since I have paid for that? Also your phone number-16132360521 is not being answered.

        1. Abu SusanSays

          11 months ago

          Yes, Yours is a case of change of data via marriage. Which can be addressed by the immigration officer at the Mission. The most important thing is that your NIN is already in the name you want to change to. This information is in the news update section of our website if only you bothered to read.

          1. Audrey Chukwudumebi OkaforSays

          What a place. They never answer phone calls. What is wrong with us Nigeria? Why we make life to difficult for ourselves? It is even more painful to go through difficulties in dealing with the embassy than the daily stress The embassy and the entire staff working there need to read complaints and then find ways to deal with them instead of pushing that ego.

    RE: I have an enquiry to make. My passport has title 'Dr' in front of my first name since its issuance in Nigeria, and I plan to renew my passport soon for urgent travel. The NIN office here in Canada has been contacted, they said its only name rearrangement that they can edit, and that no title will be written against my name on the NIN slip. They say even if I redo another NIN, it wont reflect the Dr title as it appears on my passport. Bringing this NIN slip for my passport, I hope this will not give me issue when I come to Ottawa for passport renewal.

    Am applying for a passport renewal and my capturing is on April 14, 2023 and there is a mistake on my application form. My NIN has 3 names and my passport application form has 2 names. Example: Application form - Muhammed Katherine NIN - Muhammed Aisha Katherine I want an abbreviation of A to be put on my passport to represent Aisha. Please kindly advise what to do Am thinking of doing affidavit to prove that I have those 3 names. What do you advice. Contact me through email please. Thank you

    1. Abu SusanSays

      11 months ago

      As it is above, you will have a lot of issues on April 14. 1. What you need on your passport now is a change of name to reflect what you have exactly on your NIN. 2. If you want A on your new passport, you have to change your NIN to Muhammed A Katherine and that is what you should also have on your new passport. 3. If you have applied for renewal already without doing so with the new name you want to see on the new passport, then, you have more challenges ahead of you. 4. Finally, what you need to do is change your NIN to what you want to see on your passport and then re-do your application for passport renewal in the new name as seen on your new NIN.OR change the name on your application for renewal to what you have on your current NIN.

    Good day Ma'am, I wanted to confirm that it's just the: 1. Name, 2. Gender, and 3. Date of Birth, that should match exactly between the NIN and Passport renewal application and nothing else. I'm trying to avoid any surprises for when I come for capturing. Thank you.

    1. Abu SusanSays

      10 months ago

      The details on your passport must appear the same way they are on your NIN. For instance, if your name on the passport is MUKHTAR USMAN BALA, it must appear in the same order. Not BALA MUKHTAR USMAN. The system will reject your application.

    PLEASE I REALLY NEE YOUR HELP. #S0S - Please kindly hear me out. I came to Ottawa to renew my passport but was told of my mismatching names on my NIN. PASSPORT NAMES Surname - Ades** Given names - Ade** Ope*** NIN NAMES Surname - Ades** 1st Name - Ade** Middle name - Ope** Now I have gone to update my names with NIMC and got it verified but I am still being told by the office that they don’t mind. NEW NIN NAMES Surname - Ades** 1st name - Ope** Middle name - Ade** Looking at this, I do not think I should have made any changes to my names on the NIN in the first instance. Right? Am I missing something? What could be wrong? What can I do? Which of my NIN arrangements is correct? Application Reference ID :- 8862068037

    My passport is expiring in a year's time and it was announced that you can start renewal if it is a year. Also I just got married, I would like to initiate a name change as I renew. I have initiated the name change on my NIN and I have all supporting documents, marriage certificate, newspaper publication, sworn affidavit. 1. How long will it take to get my new passport? 2. Can I just come to the commission without booking an appointment since it is a name change/renewal due to marriage? Thank you.

    1. Abu SusanSays

      9 months ago

      Be it a name change or normal renewal, we do not accept walk-ins. Please visit the Nigeria Immigration Service Website to pay and book your appointment. It takes 2-3 months to process a name change via marriage because approval comes from Abuja.

  32. Abu SusanSays

    9 months ago

    In the first place, it was wrong to have written the wrong NIN. Many applicants who did the same have been facing challenges for months now. Please, get your VERIFIED NIN and start the process all over. The Mission can not rectify your NIN for you. Considering what you wrote, please focus on getting the process right first. It takes 2-3 weeks to process a passport if you do not have any challenges, especially with your NIN. And not that we do not allow WALK-INS. We operate strictly by appointment.

    Hi, my passport has 2 middle names and the NIN has the Surname, Firstname and 1st middle name, the second middle name was not included I believe due to length, kindly confirm this is OK. I remember raising it as an issue but was told it is in the system but not displayed on the NIN slip. Kindly confirm this is OK

    1. Abu SusanSays

      9 months ago

      It is a big issue, Ibk. Ensure that what you have on your NIN is the same as what is on your passport. Do not bother to come to the Mission for renewal if this issue is not fixed. The officers will not attend to you.

    I need my passport!!! It has been 8months since I came for my capturing at the embassy and I still don’t have the passport I applied for. I need to apply for my Pgwp and I can’t because I keep meeting a dead end from you people. Same thing happened in 2021. There’s no way I keep coming to the embassy to renew a passport! If the problem I have with my passport can’t be solved instead of directing me to pay for a new passport, correction fee, pay Abuja, send documents, fly to ottawa etc. I should have been told. Twice now I have done the same thing over. If I don’t get my passport by the time it’s needed I can’t guarantee what will happen because it seems everyone at the embassy don’t mind ruining other people’s life! I need my passport, 8months is a generous time honestly! I keep sending emails, keep getting replies saying I would be called to sort it and no one calls! If I were related to anyone at the embassy surely you wouldn’t watch my time and efforts in a foreign country go to waste because you can’t do your due diligence! Please please please I need my passport! In 2021 I left it be after the time waste I experienced and money wasted! This time I wouldn’t!

    Hello, I am in the process of applying for a passport renewal and have noticed a discrepancy in the number of names on my passport and my NIN (National Identification Number) card. On my passport, I have four names - Tella Rukayat Temidayo Oluwabunmi, while my NIN lists only three names - Tella Rukayat Temidayo. I'm uncertain about the appropriate steps to take. I've received advice suggesting that I should update my NIN to include the last name 'Oluwabunmi'. However, I would prefer to simplify my name to just 'Tella Rukayat Temidayo'. Could you please guide me on whether I need to update my NIN or if the name on my passport will be amended to match my NIN? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Whatever you decide to do, ensure that the name on your NIN is arranged in the same order as seen on your expire passport. Any little difference will stall the process.

    Hi. I applied for modification of date of birth before processing my passport. It was modified, which I confirmed via the NIN app and was issued my passport some months later. Fast forward to 3/4 months later, I went to check my NIN App, and the DOB that I modified had been changed to the first one (the wrong dob that I had to pay 15K for). I contacted the NIN center where I did the modifying and they told me it waa a system glitch that it would be rectified. Till today, it still hasn't been rectified. I want to ask if my NIN app might be misbehaving here OR if I have to go and pay another money to do the modification again. Please get back to me. Thank you

    Hello, I have an hyphen in my surname on my passport which is not reflected in any of my documents. I’ve gone to NIS Abuja and have had my capturing done, to remove the hyphen from my passport and was given 8 weeks for the new passport reflecting the name change to be issued. 8 weeks passed, I don’t see the passport which led to me calling an officer at Abuja, because I don’t reside there. They told me there was a problem with my NIN, that it wasn’t validated, so late but I wasn’t angry and I went in to validate it. Another 3 weeks passed before I heard word again that my BVN name doesn’t tally which by the way, it does. Here I was like hold up, when did we start needing BVN for Passport. I’ve still not received any word or received the passport or any indication they’re working on it till now. First, can I just get a new passport? Cause my previous one as expired, effecting my new change. Or can you guys do something about this, it’s literally been half a year now

    I have tried to make a change to my passport for years now, I kept being told to go to Abuja because it's a change of first name. The world has evolved from thinking that only a marriage necessitate a change in name. This name change has been done over 10 years ago, hence ALL of my documents both Canada and Nigeria (BVN & NIN) all have my updated first name except my Nigerian passport which still carries the old name that I no longer go by.Please what can be done to rectify this ....

    1. Abu SusanSays

      2 months ago

      Well, that is how the system is designed. And it is so for security reasons. Some people travel from Nigeria to other nations, and decide to change their name a few years after. You have to go to Nigeria for authentication to change what is in the original system. We are encouraged to do that of marriage because we can see evidence of marriage necessitating a change.

I really wish to know before I proceed with the change of name. Also will I be able to travel with my family with the hyphenated last name. When they don't have the hyphen on their name.

      It is too long. The Passport cant take all of them. When you decide on what to do, ensure that what is on your passport is the exact match on your NIN. Any disparity will not work.

    Good day, I flew in from Alberta about 6 weeks ago(mid Oct. 2023) only to be told at the embassy that my passport wouldn’t be renewed because my NIN wasn’t validated, though my NIN was registered in 2020 . Anyway I would like to inform the embassy that my NIN has been validated, and hopefully my passport is renewal is completed and mailed to me expeditiously as I have plans to be in Nigeria in 3 weeks for my grandma’s burial. I did call the embassy on numerous occasions for this update but to no avail. Please point me in the right direction on how/who to send my information to—this is an urgent situation. Thanks in advance!

      It is a problem. Your Passport can not be process until you fix the NIN to match your passport. Please, read our posts about NIN and Passport renewal on the website to always do the right thing.

    I plan to change my surname to my husbands surname, after we get married. Which do I change first, my NIN or my passport? I will get married in Nigeria, Should I change my NIN in Canada or Nigeria?

    1. Abu SusanSays

      Change your NIN first. And since you are getting married in Nigeria, I advice you do both NIN and renewal of your passport in Nigeria. It will be faster because change of name via Marriage from our office in Ottawa will take at least three months to process because it is done in Nigeria and not Ottawa.

    Hello, I applied for passport renewal, and even though my appointment is in March 2024, I would like to change my surname for my NIN. I have all my documents for marriage and the newspaper publication with me. How do I go about it? I stay in Kelowna and was wondering if I have to go to Vancouver or if any center handles this surname change for NIN in British Columbia. Thank you

    Hello, I applied for a renewal of passport but my first name on my NIN is my second name on my passport. I have gone ahead to apply for a renewal using the arrangementon my NIN (because I used NIN for the old one). Now ur site says name on NIN must match name on passport. If I go to NIN vendors to change the arrangement to match passport 's what will happen to my application.

      Whatever you decide to do, ensure that what appears on your NIN is exactly the same as it is on your passport. If not, the officer can not process your application.

    Please Is there a way the passport can be renewed if the NIN is already in the process for DOB change. I mean if your NIN DOB hasn't changed yet but is in the process, can you still get your passport or process your passport renewal

    Please I am about to start my renewal process but from the comments I am reading in this section, it seems I may have an issue with the renewal process. The surname on my NIN and other documents are correct but the first name and middle name are in different order. My passport says "Isidore Uchenna" while my NIN and other documents have "Uchenna" as my first name and "Isidore" as my middle name. The NIN is the correct order and I would want that to reflect on the new passport. What steps do I need to take prior to the renewal or can it be sorted out at the high commission when I apply for renewal? Thanks

    1. Abu SusanSays

      You have to apply to Abuja for change of data. We do not do that at the High Commission.
