The Cost of Nigerian International Passport Currently 2019

We formerly wrote on how to apply for a Nigerian passport online. This time, we shall look at how much does the Nigerian International Passport cost currently this 2019.


One of the necessary things you must have to travel abroad is your international passport. You should also be aware that there are two types of Nigerian passport namely: The 64 pages passport and the 32 pages passport. The difference between both passport has been covered extensively here. But note that the 64 pages passport was introduced for Nigerians who travel frequently especially when they exhaust their 32 pages.

How Much is The Nigerian International Passport Currently this 2019?

The cost of the Nigerian international passport for 64-page passport is N22,000, while applicants for 32-page passport below the age of 18 cost N10, 750 while those between ages 18-59 years will pay N17,000. For applicants above 60 years; applying for a 32-page passport will cost N10,750 at the Nigerian immigration service office.

Renewal of the Nigerian International Passport

If there should be any need for renewal of a passport, the amount of N22,000 would be paid for 64 pages and same amount goes for lost passport also.

If it is as a result of either marriage, death, or even divorce would cost N10,750 for 32 pages and N22,000 for 64 pages. We often advise that you apply for a new Nigerian passport and avoid the stress attached to renew an old passport.

Before you would register or apply for the passport, the following documents should be made available at the Immigration Office:

  1. Passport Application Form
  2. Your payment slip
  3. Local government state of origin

It’s advisable you attached the printout issued to you at the point of acquisition along with your other valid travel documents and present it at the point of entry/exist in the country.

Note: The COST of REISSUE of Standard Nigeria passport is the same as the price of a new international passport.


It important to inform a would be applicants for Nigeria international passport that according to the recent report in the Vanguard online paper, The Federal Government has said that any applicant for Nigeria international passport must have identification number from the National Identification Management Commission, NIMC, from January 1st, 2018.

Furthermore, anyone that intends to apply for the renewal of his or her passport or want to obtain a new one who is residing abroad must endeavor to obtain an identification number from NIMC (if it is available where he intended to process the passport) otherwise he will be denied issuance of the passport.

The report stated that The Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Mohammed Babadede disclosed this recently after a meeting with the database harmonization committee in Abuja, explained that the reason behind the new policy was for ease of business in the country.
