    Please I want to know if I can travel to Nigeria with an expired passport. The process of applying for new one with the new NIN issue is making it difficult to renew. I have Canadian passport

      Yes, you can but first, contact your airline. Let them know you are traveling with an expired passport and that your final destination is Nigeria.

    Request for extended Nigerian visa I trust this email finds you well. My name is Crystal Gellizeau. I’m married to a Nigerian and will be traveling to Nigeria twice between June, 2023 - June 2024. Currently the Nigerian visa options for Canadians are for 3 and 6 months duration. Is it possible for me to request for a 1 year visa ? . Best Regards

      I am not sure of that. Please, contact VFS Global. They are responsible for visa applications.

    Hello, I came to the Embassy with my son on February 13, 2023 for his passport renewal. Up until now May 15, 2023 the said passport have still not been issued. My son’s name is Mycah Imla Emovon. Please can someone or anyone tell us what the precise issue is. We have had to forego a family vacation even with flight tickets bought because we have not received his passport. Do I have to come back physically to the Embassy to get an update or a reason why his passport is not ready after 3 whole months?

    Hello, hi; So I have paid and submitted my visa application and after payment was prompt to book an appointment…which I did. I had to reschedule my appointment but the system wouldn’t let me so as suggested on the website, I waited 24hours after missed appointment to reschedule but still I am unable to because the statement keeps stating that I already have an appointment (which was missed). I called vfs global and apparently they are not taking any in person appointments and I should have been able to book one. I was told I would have to mail it in however according to the representative it will take minimum 30days to process and I would need the visa in 3 weeks for which the rep stated they do not think I will receive it by then. And so I would like to cancel my application and request a refund and was told to contact the Nigerian immigration services in Ottawa however there is no contact number to reach the immigration services. How do I go about cancelling and requesting a refund for my application? Thank you.

    I am a Canadian living in the USA. I hold a Canadian passport with a green card. I want to travel to Nigeria in January with some of my family members for my daughter's wedding. Can I get a VISA on arrival or do I have to visit a Nigerian embassy?

    Hi, We were given 6 months appointment for passport RENEWAL. We started the process in June/2023 and were given Dec/ 2023 appointment. We traveled to Ottawa to plead for an earlier appointment and we were turned back. We sent an email to request an earlier appointment as directed by Ottawa and our request was declined. We were advised to apply for travel document with our plane ticket. Is this now the norm? I feel six months is a very long time to wait. Thank you
