I overheard someone saying he was asked by passport agent to pay Thirty thousand naira for his standard Nigerian passport, I was shocked. I was furious when I learnt he actually paid the money and still had to wait for weeks before he could get it. Well, at least he got it, how about those who get scammed by fake passport agents?

My advice is you should not pay more than Fifteen thousand naira for your passport application when applying through an agent, because you pay less than ten thousand naira when applying directly. So why pay more?
