***Directives from the Consulate

Those without E-passport could get their passport within a month of acquisition, all things being equal

Those involved in out-of-station acquisition and holder of E-passport (Re-issue) takes longer time before processing as the immigration Headquarters has to approve such data switch that occurred between outside acquisition and the original data of applicants already in the data base that alternatively, those in urgent need of their passports are advised to avail themselves the opportunity by coming to the Consulate in New York. It takes a day to complete, all things being equal.

If you have any questions and wish to volunteer please contact Dr. Ewa Ewa at 773-289-7973 and Adamazi Adanna Okoro at 773-443-6516 (text for faster response) or send an email to
