The “Print Acknowledgment” button will help you print “Payment Acknowledgment Slip” with the Transaction ID, Application ID & Reference Number.

With the copy of your Payment acknowledgment slip, proceed to a participating bank for payment.

On making payment at the bank, you MUST be issued with an ‘approved payment platform provider’ receipt that contains a “Validation Number”.

After payment, the “Validation Number” is generated. Store it and use it to confirm the payment.

You can also print a receipt by clicking the “Print the Receipt” button.

Using your Validation Number

After payment, having obtained the “Validation Number”, proceed to the NIS portal for confirmation of payment:

Go to the “Query your Application Payment Status” and enter your Passport Application ID and Reference No.

If a “Validation Number” field appears, please enter the number from your ‘approved payment platform provider’ receipt. Remember: Validation Number has been generated after payment through Bank also.

Click the “Search Record” button and you will be sent to the “Applicant’s Details” page where a date for your interview has been generated.

You can now print a Receipt or an Acknowledgement Slip by using the buttons on this page. (You will need them for your interview).

You will be presented with your NIS e-receipt or Acknowledgement Slip in a new window. Click on “Print” button to send a copy to the printer.

For Payment Outside of Nigeria

If you select a processing country other than Nigeria, your payment will be in US Dollars. You will be re-directed to an approved payment platform to complete your application and make your payment in US Dollars.

On confirmation of payment, proceed for the Interview with relevant documents. Please, note that your interview schedule, final e-receipt, and acknowledgment slip are only accessible using your Validation Number.
