Consular Services: Issuance and Renewal of Nigerian Passport in Calgary
The executive of the NCAC has once again concluded arrangements with the Nigeria High Commission Ottawa to render passport issuance/
This service is primarily for NCAC members and their families in good financial standing as at April 30th, 2019. Non-members are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity. Applicable fees for members and non-members are listed below. Please note the following:
Participating in this exercise is optional, applicants have the choice to have their passports issued or renewed at the Nigerian High commission in Ottawa.
NCAC is only facilitating the passport intervention exercise, hence all enquiries should be directed to the Nigerian High Commission and not the volunteers helping with this exercise.
Execution of interventions in Calgary by the NCAC in conjunction with the Nigerian High Commission has resulted in over $800,000 savings for our community. This included all associated cost of travelling to Ottawa to obtain Nigerian passport. It is our expectation that this initiative would continue to save our community significant amount of money and time. NCAC is able to deliver our programs at cost effective rates to participants mostly because of members who volunteered their time. Please note that we will require volunteers for this program, we’ll communicate this in a separate email.
All appointments to collect documents and meet with embassy officials will take place at the Nigeria House located at: 319, 3132 26th Street NE, Calgary
