It has come to the notice of this Consulate-General and as has been noticed by fellow nationals that the previous online mode of payment for new e-Passports has been suspended. The new method observed is that Money Orders would substitute for the online payment via credit card of US$65.00 and such money order would be addressed and mailed to SW Global LLC, 50 Albany Turnpike, Canton, CT 06019.

This organization would in turn post a payment confirmation advice to the applicant’s e-mail address provided in the transaction, the applicant would download this confirmation with other e-Passport forms filled online and present himself/herself to the Consulate-General in Atlanta for Biometric Data Capturing pursuant to the issuance of an e-Passport. For purposes of clarity, the only change in the e-Passport issuance procedure is the method of payment of the US$65.00 e-Passport application fee, while all other processes involved in the issuance of these passports remain unchanged.

Fellow nationals are advised to adhere strictly to this new payment method of the US$65.00 as no other method of payment shall be accepted. If this procedure is disregarded, the application form procedure shall be impeded and inchoate. However, this change does not affect the US$30.00 administrative charges in Money Order payable to the Consulate-General of Nigeria in Atlanta. It is strictly advised that the Money Order shall as usual accompany the submission of application form and appearance at the Consulate-General for completion of the application procedure.

It is assumed that the circumstances that led to this new method shall be addressed in due course and a less cumbersome and less tedious mode of payment shall be re-introduced.

Consulate-General of Nigeria,

Atlanta, Georgia
