 *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.

    I want to clarify the $100 fee. Is the $100 fee referenced in the “Steps to complete application and registration” section (#2) different from the $100 referenced in the “Items to bring with you to the venue” (section) #2?

      Hi. Yes, there are 2 $100 fees.

      The first $100 POST OFFICE MONEY ORDER is Registration Fee payable to ADAMAZI EVENTS to participate in the Exercise. Paid at time of registration and before participation.
