Your International Passport Will Now Be Valid For 10Years. Nigerian Immigration Service, over the weekend in Kano, said it has concluded plans to affect the validity of Nigerian passport to 10 years.
Controller General, Immigration, Muhammad Babandede, said this on Sunday at the graduation ceremony of 652 Cadet officers of the 43rd Superintendent Basic Course, held at the Immigration Training School, Kano.
Babandede, who hinted that the service does not recognize presentation of high profile notes or calls for special posting of officers, cautioned the new cadets to accept their new posting in good faith.
Babandede added that Immigration is currently ICT driven, with fully automated services, including visa issuance and passport application process.
He reminded the new cadets that ICT compliance was mandatory, adding that the graduands are the first to be trained on the new curriculum, designed for all the training institutions of the NIS and the Immigration training school, Kano inclusive, for degree holders.
Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, who was represented by Commissioner, NIS management board, Ado Ja’faru, restated Federal Government commitment to strengthening national security architecture.
