On Wednesday, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan launched and obtained the 64 page e-passport in Abuja. The existing e-passport is 32 page.

The Presidency reveals that the 64 page e-passport conforms with international best practices. It helps frequent travelers, it is gender friendly, and more cost effective for low income earners.

The cost for the passport which is strictly for frequent travelers, is N8,750. It has also been stated that this new passport in no way invalidates the 32 page passport.

The President also had a word for Nigerians and how they portray the country outside the shores. He urged Nigerians to paint respectful pictures of their country so that others would see it in the same light.

The President then proceeded to be the first citizen to get the e-passport followed by the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, as they got captured by the Immigration officials.

The e-passport takes off from August 1 and the President expressed optimism that collectively Nigerians can help to create a brighter image for the country, and save travellers the embarrassment they face while travelling abroad.
