 The National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, is pushing for the use of the new national e-Identity card as travel document. One of the applets fixed in the card has all the travel details and requirements contained in Nigeria’s e-passport. Known as Travel Applet, it could easily be used as travel document with the approval of the international community.

Tunji Durodola, Head, Card Management Services, NIMC, said that the back of the NIMC e-ID Card contains three lines called MRZ Lines, Machine Readable Zone, just like the Passport. “The NIMC e-ID Card has support for e-Visas when they become acceptable worldwide,” he said.

He further stated that the International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO, supports the use of electronic visas, e-Visas, as travel document.  For this to work, Durodola, said NIMC and the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, must work things out in agreement.

You definitely wl gt stamped b4 crossing d immigration desk except u hv a residence permit, even sme countries sef go still stamp u if their residence permit is stamped on ur passport.
