Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, announced that home delivery of passports will commence in June.

Tunji-Ojo made this announcement on May 24 during an inspection of the electronic gates at the new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

He clarified that the home delivery service will initially be available only in specific locations to prevent overloading the system.

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) will roll out this service in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kano, and Abuja.

For Nigerians living abroad, the service will first be introduced in the United States and the United Kingdom, with initial testing to ensure its effectiveness.

The minister explained that the delay in starting home delivery was due to the lack of data centers. The NIS had been relying on a private company’s data center but needed a permanent solution to maintain data integrity and national security.
