A four-page temporary international passport has been launched for Nigerians in the diaspora.

Launched by the federal government on Tuesday, March 9, it was made known in a series of tweets from the official Twitter account of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, led the launch of the document which was held at the headquarters of the NIS in Abuja.

The electronic passport is a one-way travel document for an emergency return to the country and is valid for only 30 days.

According to Aregbesola, the e-passport will replace the Paper-type Emergency Travel Certificate which is issued to Nigerians who want to return home but don’t have the regular standard passport.

Though it has all the features of the standard international passport the 4-page booklet does not serve as a replacement for the Nigerian passport.
