Nigeria Immigration speaks on e-passport being rejected in Dubai, UAE

The Nigerian Immigration Service has stated that the new enhanced e-passport is acceptable in all countries.

This was confirmed by the Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, via a statement in Abuja on Thursday.

The statement addresses the problem the new enhanced e-Passport had with authorities in the United Arab Emirate (UAE).

“The recent problem on the e-Passport with the authority of the United Arab Emirate (UAE) has been resolved.

“I will like to seize this opportunity to thank both the Ambassadors of UAE and Nigeria for resolving the issue.

“In view of the above, Nigerians are encouraged to get their National Identity Number (NIN) and ensure that the information tallies with the one on their Passports.

“The uniformity of the NIN information and that of the 10-year validity Passport is to ensure one identity which is a major feature of the new enhanced e-Passport,” Babandede said.
