pasportAccording to Muhammad Babandede, the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service, the Federal Government is considering extending validity period for international passports from its current 5 to 10 years.

Babandede said that Nigerians should expect an announcement on the policy changes in the coming months. “We have submitted a memo to the president and we believe we’ll get a positive response to that soon,” Mr. Babandede said.

The immigration chief said the review was the government’s response to several months of complaints from Nigerians and other foreign elements who said the five-year validity period is way too short.
