President Goodluck Jonathan launched and obtained the 64 page e-passport in Abuja on Wednesday July 30, 2014. The existing e-passport is 32 page.
The Presidency reveals that the 64 page e-passport conforms with international best practices. It helps frequent travellers, it is gender friendly, and more cost effective for low income earners.
The cost for the passport which is strictly for frequent travellers, is N8,750. It has also been stated that this new passport in no way invalidates the 32 page passport.
