I get many inquiries from my readers to write simple steps to follow to have a Nigerian passport renewed in Dubai.
For clarity, the Nigerian Consulate office in Dubai do not issue passport as I have written in full details in my other post – Nigerian Consulate in Dubai: Passport Renewal
This post is to simplify the process and tell you what to do to renew your Nigerian international passport from the Nigerian Consulate office in Dubai to receive your passport in the Embassy of Nigeria, Abu Dhabi.
Nigeria passport renewal in Dubai: 4 Simple Steps to Follow

Step 2: Pay at the Nigerian Consulate Office in Dubai
This process from step 1 should take you to the next page where you can printout your online application.

Abu Dhabi has said all travelers who wish to get tested by the new Covid-19 laser-testing method at the border must pre-book their appointments online.
The appointments can be booked via this website: ghantoot.quantlase.com/appointment/update-details/
Due to high demand for the laser-based DPI screening to enter #AbuDhabi, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis & Disasters Committee approved a new process in which the service provider will only offer screening based on pre-booked appointments via the website: https://t.co/DWhcq3yVl0 pic.twitter.com/mvekfq5l3M— مكتب أبوظبي الإعلامي (@admediaoffice) July 15, 2020
