With the commencement of the issuance of the e-passport in the Consulate, it has become necessary for the general public who seek the services of the Mission to take note of the following:

  1. All requests for visa and passport applications online using the website of the Nigerian Immigration Service: http://www.immigration.gov.ng
  2. Processing of travel documents (passport and visa) are to be completed and payment made online. Additional fee of $30 (thirty dollars) payable in money order and addressed to the Consulate of Nigeria, Atlanta would be made available to the Mission on submission of the relevant documents.
  3. That the e-passport is devoid of observation and endorsement i.e change of names owing to marriage and insertion of children.
  4. That Mission is not in the position as of now, to replace lost e-passport untill clearance is obtained from the Nigeria Immigration Services, Abuja.
  5. Applicants are expected to have completed the processing of their application online and bring them to the Mission, as Mission will not provide in-house internet services for applicants; ensure that your payment receipt page is printed out and brought along with you.
  6. Cash transaction in whatever form, within or outside Mission’s premises or with any official of the Mission, is prohibited.
