Changing your Name for a Nigerian passport renewal

If you currently want to have your name changed on your Nigerian passport, please bring any documents showing your new name and or married name, ex: Marriage certificate/License, US passport, or Permanent resident card showing your new name. In addition to your expired Nigerian passport and (2) passport pictures ​

Note: Due to the long process of having a name change done, it is much easier and advisable to have a name change done in Nigeria. If you still have the old Nigerian passport that was last issued in 2008 or in previous years, you can easily have a name change done in the States at any Nigerian Embassy. If you have the current ECOWAS passport from 2009 to — the present, then having a name change done takes approximately 4–6 months and sometimes takes up to a year. ​
