The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Interior, has launched the online passport application portal to allow Nigerians to apply for their passport seamlessly.

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo had announced in December that the FG was working to ensure a fully automated system of passport application in the country.

At the time, the minister said the automated application system was “99 per cent done,” adding that the process would include uploading passport photos and supporting documents.
