Awesome experience. The Nigerian High Commission Ottawa is really doing well. The staff are friendly and the process is smooth. Just come in relax and follow the process. It can improve with a little more technology but on a whole this is really good. Better than our experience in Johannesburg and even in Lagos. Keep improving. God bless you all. God bless Nigeria.

Passport Renewal

I had a great experience .The staff were very pleasant . I travelled from Totonto and arrived very early. They were open as early as 8:30am, which was very impressive because the official open time is 9am. They started attending to us around a few minutes past 9am. It was a relatively simple and fast process. I got my passport a few minutes past 12 noon.
