FACTORS THAT MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAY IN ISSUANCE OF PASSPORT.

  1. The volume of traffic: A passport office located in a big city will definitely attract a large number of people.
  2. Nearness to potential international traveller’s place of residence.
  3. Nearness to embassies and international airports: A passport office situated in any of the above will have more visitors.
  4. Power generation: Unreliable and fluctuations in electricity provisions not only delayed work but damage important computer equipment, and encourage the use of unconventional power generating systems.
  5. Slow Internet: Nigeria Passport is an electronic-based device and without a fast Internet connection constantly,  nothing can be done.
  6. Bureaucracy in the provision of pieces of equipment and working materials.
  7. Working with obsolete, faulty and substandard types of equipment.
  8. Human factors: This is an occasion by the inefficient workforce, officers with lackadaisical attitude and avaricious, contributed greatly to delay in getting passports fast.
  9. Finally, few passport applicants erroneously believed that if they obtain their passport in a particular city or location, the foreign embassy will definitely accord them more recognition. Hence their refusal or inability to move to adjacent State passport offices to process a passport. Please note that the current passport is homogeneous and an electronic-based device, it can be processed in any approved passport office or a Nigerian Embassy across the globe. For example,  go to Damaturu, Yobe state and process your passport, it is of the same quality as the one you labour vigorously to obtain in Lagos.
