Written by thereachfm on December 13, 2019
Nigerian Immigration Service says the new e-passport is made with a water-resistant material and is secure.
NIS Comptroller-General, Muhammed Babandede, said the new passport has the latest security features and biometrics that comply with International Civil Aviation Organisation standards.
He said it has the Polycarbonate Data Page with laser printing as against the existing passport which is printed with ink on hard paper.
The new version has the Supplemented Access Control, which is the latest set of security features on e-passports.
It comes in three standard variants: the 32-page passport with five-year validity; the 64-page with five-year validity and the 64-page with 10-year validity.
