    Can a newborn be captured for NIN at the Nigerian Embassy in Ottawa? If No where can this be done? Also, is NIN a requirement for a newborn requesting a new passport?

      There is no NIN center at the High Commission, however, there are centers in Ottawa and other provinces across Canada. Visit our homepage-latest news section to see the list, scroll through and call the vendor close to you for the data capture.

    I captured for NIN in January 2023, but I haven't received any email regarding the NIN.

    Hello Susan, I gave birth to my son (one year old) in Canada and he needs a Nigeria international passport. I know NIN is compulsory. Kindly confirm if 1. Local Government Identification Letter is required for one year old born in Canada 2. Can a one-year-old have a 10-year validity passport?

      1. No 2. You need to get him the 5-year validity passport. Go to our latest news section to read more about NIN and eligibility.

    I’d love to inquire for the process and steps to follow for renewal of Nigerian passport for my 5 years old daughter. Her passport will expire in July. I’m aware that she requires NIN, how do I also go about it? Please advise on what to do. Thank you
