FG Launches 4-Page Booklet Nigerian Temporary Passport



The Federal Government of Nigeria has launched a four page booklet Nigerian Temporary Passport (NTP) on Tuesday.

NTP according to the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is a travel document designed for a one-way trip to Nigeria only.

Aregbesola said “The NTP 4-page booklet will now replace the unstandardized Emergency Travel Certificate (ETC).

“It is an electronic document that has all the features of a regular passport, just that it is temporary and valid for one trip and will be retrieved from the user at the entry point.

He, however, stressed that “The NTP does not in any way serve as a replacement for the Nigerian passport”.

Explaining how the temporary passport will be used, he said NTP will be issued to Nigerians to return home in emergency situations in the case of loss or misplacement of their passport and it is valid for only 30 days after issuance or arrival in Nigeria.
