It serves not only as a means of identification but also facilitates international transactions. The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) oversees the issuance of international passports in the country, with two main categories: the 64-page and the 32-page passports, each available in three types – normal (green cover), official (blue cover), and diplomatic (red cover).

As of 2023, the official cost for the 64-page Nigerian international passport is ₦70,000 with a 10-year validity period, while the 64-page passport with a five-year validity period costs ₦35,000. The 32-page, five-year-validity passport is priced at ₦25,000. These rates have been in effect since March 4, 2019.
