Our power of choice untrammelled and when nothing prevents what like best we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled.



Please note the following:

  • The applicant must be physically present for Biometric capture except otherwise directed. Applications must reach the Immigration Section of the Embassy latest by 10 am and 3 pm for morning and afternoon sessions respectively.
  • As the enhanced e-passport which is integrated with the National Identity Number (NIN) is about to be rolled out, applicants are advised to maintain their true hair color and facial outlooks to avoid identity theft and forgery due to misinformation which is a crime punishable by law.
  • All documents that are not in English must be translated.
  • Avoid wearing bright-colored clothes when coming for capturing of biometric data as it affects the picture quality.
  • Applicants are advised to keep their passports in safe and dry places to avoid loss or damage.

  • At the moment, applicants do not need appointments to obtain passports in Beijing, China.
